    This is good info, Lady_V - thanks!

    Of course I'm a little ahead of myself....cabbage will be cheapest next month and I just sent hubby to the store for some right before I read this post. Oh well, thought it'd be really good with the leftover ham we're having tonight so I'm willing to pay a little more...this time.

    Thanks for sharing this

    Do you mind sharing your source? Is it region specific?

    Thanks.

    Was wondering if it was region specific but it doesn't state I know where I shop now, bananas and celery are definitely NOT a bargain.

    I don't think everything is on 'sale' that month... I've noticed the prices going up & up... I think these are the 'best of' what's out there though
