Rhubarb is in season April – May! This is the ONLY time of the year you can come across fresh rhubarb. You will find rhubarb in the produce section at WholeFoods. If you are having a hard time finding fresh rhubarb, then you can always find it in the freezer section at Publix

I found strawberries on sale this week at Fresh Market. You will save $2.00 on a 32 ounce container of organic strawberries or $98 cents on two 16 ounce containers of conventional strawberries.

As always, you can purchase antibiotic-free chicken at Fresh Market on Tuesdays for $2.99 per pound. That is a savings of $4.00!
