Is the Price Right?

Don’t let high prices weigh your pockets down!

Inspired by the opening of the new Safeway, The Georgetowner has decided to find the best priced products in the DC area by comparing items from Whole Foods Market, Trader Joe’s, Dean & Deluca, Safeway and Giant. For our initial “Is the Price Right” column, we sought to bring you the best deals on a few of summer’s freshest foods. To cool off in the summer sun, the least expensive option for Poland Spring sparkling water is $0.89 at Whole Foods Market. Add some zest to your water with lemons or limes for $0.39 each at Trader Joe’s. For a great snack, Fage Greek yogurt mixed with fresh berries is a summer delight. Fage can be purchased for $1.79 at Trader Joe’s, Safeway and Whole Foods, yet choosing Safeway for your mix-ins is your berry best bet. Blackberries, raspberries and strawberries can be found at Safeway for $3.49, $3.49 and $2.49 respectively. However, if you’re craving blueberries, $2.66 at Giant is the best deal.
