Just got back from my weekly shop in NPGS. It's just me + my dh and we are dieting now so I'm going through a lot of produce.

Without getting anything fancy - ex no checked lettuce, precut items etc - the fruits and vegetables from my bill totaled up to $70. Feels like a lot.

Is there any single store where I would do better? I don't want to go to multiple places. At one point I was buying some things in Walmart, some things in Aldi, and some things in NPGS but can't drive myself crazy at this point.

I buy a lot of fresh produce and Costco has great produce at very good prices.

It is well worth the cost of membership even for a relatively small family in my opinion. Also many people split a membership with someone else because you are give two cards so you don't have to go with the other person.

Costco has amazing and delicious produce but it’s not necessarily cheaper or even the same price. Their produce is generally not cheap but you get good quality.

OP, how about trying Aldi’s?

My experience is that Costco produce is significantly cheaper than produce at other stores.

Of course I have no interest in buying poor quality produce as it winds up being thrown out since it doesn't taste as good and nobody eats it. 🤷🏼‍♀️

Any fruit or tomatoes - high quality is a must. Stuff like zucchini which will be cooked with strong flavoring not as critical. Even stuff like string beans often suffers as I find that there are often dark brown spots when I prep.

I don't know if it is helpful in Brooklyn but in Los Angeles the fresh produce at some of the Asian markets like 99 Ranch is phenomenal and very cheap. I make it a point to go there in June during fresh lychee season because they sell for $1.99 per pound versus $10 per pound at Pavillions - if Pavillions even has it. LOL

They also have live fish swimming in tanks.

That does sound high. I get all produce at Walmart or Lidl except checked romaine.
