Earth Fare Dayton Best Buys 10/19 - 11/01



I am working on a separate post of my overall impression of Earth Fare (which is very favorable) so if it seems that I don’t address something here, it might be in the other post.  If there is something you'd like me to find out about or follow up on with Earth Fare, please comment below or email me.  


Since this month’s sale and the Grand Opening Specials end TODAY, I’m just highlighting some of the best buys.

Remember to take your Welcome Home coupon for a free chicken, and an old eyeliner to trade in with the Boot Challenge coupon for a free eyeliner.  Go through this list to see if there are coupons you want to print, and be sure to pick up your coupon booklet at the door.

* I am abbreviating “Organic” as Org. since I get to use it so often on this list!

** The BOGO items that I have purchased here rang up individually at half the price of one, (rather than one at full price, and the second at no cost) which should allow you to use 2 coupons on 2 items that are BOGO. I have accounted for being able to use either 1 or 2 coupons in the FINAL COSTS of BOGO items listed below.

PRODUCE

I’m really taken with Earth Fare so I’m sad to report that they don’t have the best prices on most produce items this week.  I will say that I think they’re still finding their footing in our market, and I found the employees (from the corporate office to the local store) very receptive to pricing concerns and receptive in general.  They do have a respectable variety of fresh organic produce.

Nonetheless, it is my goal to find you the best prices on organic and quality foods, so I am only listing the items that really stood out to me as great values this week.  Where the price difference elsewhere is within .50 cents, I’ll list it here and note the price at other stores.

Org. Butternut Squash .97¢/lb.
This is a great price, and a perfect ingredient for eating seasonally.
[I’ll include this in Recipes & Menu Ideas this week at My other Blog.] [1 squash]

Org. Earthbound Farms pre-packaged salads $3
FINAL COST: $2 ea. when you buy 2
Org. Cilantro $1.79 (fresh bunch, NOT the small plastic container)
[I’ll include this in Recipes & Menu Ideas this week.] [1 bunch]
{Same product was $1.50 at Kroger on 10/27 but I don’t know how long it will be at that price.}

Org. Herbs $2.49 (or $2.50) (aprox. .67 oz plastic container)
[I’ll include this in Recipes & Menu Ideas this week.] [1 pkg. Thyme]
{Similar product is the same price at DLM, but regularly $1.99 at Kroger. 
I often find them clearanced at .99¢ at Kroger, though, and the quality is fine}

BULK FOODS

Assorted Nut Butters 20% off
Organic Peanut Butter $3.18/ lb.
This is ground to order from the dispenser!
Unfortunately, the weekly reward of 25% off Bulk Foods (excluding some items) expired Sunday 10/30.  These are still reasonable prices for organic legumes.

FINAL COST: 1/ $1.98 OR 2/ $3.99
Kerrygold Butter 8 oz. salted or unsalted $3.49 (other varieties 2.49 – 4.99)
I was so excited to find this butter here! I had bought some previously at DLM and this is a fine price for an exceptional product. It is from Ireland, made from the milk of grass-fed cows.  One day, I’ll post the menu that compliments this butter perfectly.  It has to be a serendipitous day, though.
