Let’s face it, this is a great deal from King Soopers! KEEN is known for its high-quality, durable athletic shoes. With all that’s going on in the world, the Portland-based company decided to use their high workmanship and materials to also make face masks. Its shoes aren’t on the cheap side, so you’d expect to pay a little more for its face masks. [Read more…] about Get Two KEEN Face Masks For $10 at King Soopers
The rosy sale continues for another week! Stop and smell the roses…and savings! King Soopers is blooming with a great deal this week on its Bloom Haus roses. Bargain hunters have rarely sniffed such a low-price on roses at the grocery chain. (To be fair, King Soopers offered the same low-price last summer, too.) Actually, it’s one of the lowest prices ever spotted on a dozen roses in Denver. And, remember, roses aren’t just for special occasions — a bouquet of roses will brighten anyone’s day — even more so, when they’re unexpected.

Many bargain hunters are missing the FREE Friday Download from a certain popular grocery store. (Let’s hope it’s back soon!) However, Safeway may be filling in the gap with its Saturday Sampler offer.

Palisade peaches, Olathe sweet corn, Rocky Ford melons — Colorado grows a bounty of produce recognized nationwide. And, as anyone who has driven on the Eastern Plains can attest, we are a state that owes its heritage, at least in part, to hardworking farmers. While you can shop “Colorado Proud” in most grocery stores, you can also pick your own fruits and veggies. Some fields are open now, others hold off until later in the season.

A “pay-how-you-can” weekly farmers market open in the Globeville Elyria-Swansea community starting Wednesday, July 1. Lost City Market will operate every Wednesday through October 28 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the TAXI complex (3459 Ringsby Ct.). The market’s “pay-how-you-can” model provides affordable access to fresh produce and essential pantry items by allowing customers to pay in one of three ways: 1) pay full price for your a la carte items or pre-packaged farm boxes; 2) pay what you can afford, whether this is a few dollars or nothing at all; or 3) pay for your groceries by volunteering at a future market.

Every shopper in Denver is going to have to bag a new fee, come this summer. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you should know the environmental challenges plastic bags cause for all of us. (Actually, you’ve probably found a plastic bag under that rock!) An estimated 250 million bags are used by Denver residents every year, according to city officials. Unfortunately, only about 5% of those bags are recycled. The rest end up in the waste system.

Just added: Romano’s Macaroni Grill. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that Colorado is, by nature, an agricultural state. Though it may be a month or more before our farmer’s markets open (they are considered essential businesses), in the meantime there are other options instead of the supermarket for locally-grown fruit, vegetables, meat and more. Some are wholesalers who are opening their doors to retail customers because of so many restaurant closures. Others are restaurants, butcher shops, farmers or specialty retailers. We plan to update this list, so bookmark it and keep checking back. [Read more…] about UPDATED: 36 Local Places To Order & Buy Produce, Fruit, Meat & Grocery Staples
Special hours at most retailers are expected to continue through May. Everyone needs to play an active role in taking care of all the vulnerable populations in our community, especially the elderly. A simple trip to the grocery store can now be an arduous task for those populations because of the potential exposure to other shoppers. (If you’re healthy, please ask your older relatives, neighbors and friends, if they need assistance with picking up groceries or other necessities.)

If you’ve ever thought about ordering groceries online, now may be the time to try it. No having to set your alarm to get in early or try to figure out when various aisles are restocked. True, you can’t pick and choose that specific batch of bananas or scan boxes of cereal for the latest expire date. On the otherhand, you let someone else do the heavy lifting, while you stay home. But people who have never ordered food online may be confused by the options. [Read more…] about How To Order Groceries Online – Compare Your Options

With extra time on your hands, you may want to take on the task of cleaning and organizing your pantry and refrigerator. There’s a good chance you’re buying food you probably already have in your kitchen (especially if it’s unorganized) — just hidden in the back or under other products. On the other side, you may have “expiration police” in your household. Those who refuse to consume anything expired and are quick to toss anything “old” in the garbage. They’re always the ones searching for an expiration date on every package. [Read more…] about Expires On, Sell By and Best Before…What Does It All Mean?
Colorado rancher Rex Moore of Rock River Bison typically sells his bison meat to restaurants. Having lost 80% of his business last week, he is turning to direct consumer sales. He has lots of bison meat in his coolers and warehouse and would like to sell to you. As Moore tells MHOTC, “Yes, I am real. The plea for help is real. Yes, I am selling bison meat direct to the consumer. Yes, Craigslist took down my ad since it was getting so much traffic.” [Read more…] about Colorado Rancher Selling Bison Meat Direct To Consumers
