Produce prices at my Kroger have doubled since last week.

Doubled.

Lettuces, cucumbers, all kinds of vegetables.

Oddly, avocados are only 99 cents. (From cold storage, no doubt.)

This is going to be a real problem for many families.

1. Not sure if "doubled" but my local Safeway has had many price increases...

$1.99 celery bunch is now $2.99.

Quality is crap, too. I suspect partly weather, plus the tariffs so any imported stuff is more. A lot of our off season produce comes from south of the border.

6. I just went to Kroger... avocados were 69 cents and grapes were 99 cents per pound.

I haven't noticed anything doubling.

* I usually buy my produce elsewhere, unless there is a good sale at Kroger (which is closer).
