Produce Shopping Tips

Not all packaging is equal

Not all packaging is equal…in weight I mean. So, let’s say you’re going to buy celery and all the bags say they weigh 2 pounds and cost 99 cents. What they really mean is weigh ABOUT 2 pounds. What does that mean for you? Well, to get the biggest bang for your buck, pick the three you think look/weigh the most. Then go over to the scale and weigh them and buy the heaviest one. (This is REALLY fun for kids to do as well!) This goes for bags of oranges, potatoes, and anything in a bag.

Try and find the biggest one you can!

Anything you buy that is a price per unit (i.e. 99 cents for A head of lettuce) and isn’t a price per pound, you want to use the same trick as above. Try and get the largest/heaviest one you can find, this well get you the most for your money. Produce that is usually sold PER item and not per pound may be: Green Peppers, Lettuce, ORANGES, Watermelon, etc.

    Not always are the biggest, the sweetest or best tasting. Smell your lettuce! If it has a strong smell, it’s bitter.
