Walmart produce deals this week

Posted May 6, 2010 11:01 a.m. EDT

I needed a few things from Walmart yesterday (including veggie burgers and free Reach floss and free Johnson's Buddies soap using coupons) so I spent a little time comparing produce prices.

As is normally the case, they had some very good prices on some items and some very high prices on others. Here are the better buys I found on Walmart produce this week:

Roma tomatoes $1.50/lb

Strawberries, 16 oz $1.38

Cantaloupe $1.26 each

Green apples .73/lb

Red delicious apples $1.37/lb

Pineapple $2.88 each

Carrots, 1 lb bag  .74

Green pepper .98 each

Broccoli crowns $1.68/lb

Mushrooms, whole, 8 oz $1.78

I also noticed some good prices on other items including:

Tilpapia fillets, frozen, 16 oz $3.98

Salmon fillets, frozen, 16 oz $4.48

Great Value Orange Juice 64 oz $1.98

Milk $2.78/gallon (good regular price for milk)

Eggs, 1 dozen $1.28  (Kroger has 18 count for $1.66 this week, which is cheaper per egg)

Keep in mind that your Walmart may have different prices. These prices are from the location at 40/42 between Garner and Clayton in Johnston County.
