I dropped into Tacoma Boys today on 6th Avenue. Have you ever been?
They also have a sister store in Lakewood called H&L Produce and they offer great deals on produce, meat, and more. I wanted to share a few things I found today:
Gallon-size tomato plants for just $2.50 each. They looked really healthy!
Pack-size veggie starts $1.50 each – they had tons of different varieties including lettuces, chard, tomatoes, and more.
They also are selling small bunches of local daffodils for $1 this week, but I didn’t take a picture. (Sorry, you’ll just have to trust me on that one.)
I ended up with this:
It’s about 22-24 pounds of Fuji apples for $10! They are not perfect looking and I had to hunt a bit, but they will be fantastic for some applesaucing I plan to do today.
If you like Tacoma Boys, I recommend you follow them on Facebook. They frequently post deals there you won’t find anywhere else. For instance they might say, “for our Facebook fans, ask for <<insert deal here>> at the butcher’s block today only.”
You can also find their ad online. A few notables:
- Lettuce for $1/head
- D’anjou pears for $1/lb
- Cauliflower for $1.50/each
- Broccoli for $1/lb
Do you like shopping at Tacoma Boys/H&L Produce? And if you’re not local, do you have a similar local market you like to shop at?
