Organic sweet potatoes
While the 19-cent bananas are not organic, plenty of the other produce is. That includes the big-ass 3lb bag of sweet potatoes, which goes for $3.99. Considering the non-organic ones at most stores run around $2.99/lb, going big is the best move here. And a healthy one.
Cage-free eggs are another good find. "Eggs are a good deal at only $1.99," the woman behind the sampling station told me. "Anywhere else, they're $2.30 and up. And I get my cage-free eggs for $2.79."
"The pasta is imported from Italy and is 99 cents," a manager told me. She noted that imported pasta elsewhere can run you at least $3-$4. That's a bunch of meals for the same price as a burger on a fast-food joint's dollar menu, and while you cook it, you can even sing the "That's Amore" song to yourself, like a real Italian chef! The manager also noted that other Italian staples like olive oil and vinegar are solid values. I can confirm: the 100% Italian organic extra-virgin olive oil is always competitively priced.
