Produce on a Budget

I am going to really start watching produce prices--visiting many local farmer's markets/produce stands. Readers tipped me off on an ad that's in today's paper for Rick's Produce(pg 3, green ad). Rick's Produce is just one of the fruit and veggie stands that I will be paying a visit to this week. I plan to take advantage of some of the deals listed below. Remember you could also use the ad to price match at WalMart.

Cabbage 3lbs/$1
Carrots 1 lb bag 2/$1*
Lettuce 2/$1*
Vine Ripe Tomatoes $0.99/lb
Pears 4/$1*
Sweet Honey Tangerines or Oranges 10/$1
Pink Grapefruit 4/$1
Seedless Red or White Grapes $1.29 lb (Target has a better price this week at .99/lb)*
Yellow, Red, Green Peppers 2/$1*
Celery $0.79/stalk*
5 lb bag of potatoes $0.69 a bag
Broccoli or Cauliflower $0.89 each
10 lb bag of Russett potatoes $0.99/bag
3 lb bag of yellow onions $0.89/bag

Directions: 2700 Pleasant Valley Road(Govt & Pleasant Valley)

*Part of the dirty dozen. If budget allows consider buying these organic. The Dirty Dozen are the fruits and veggies with the highest concentration of pesticide residue. View full list of fruits and veggies rankings here. While we may not eat 100% organic by any means, I do want to learn more about the topic(thus share with you)...There will be organic items I do buy like apples.

I have the Sunday 2/14 Mobile Press Register but I cannot find the Rick's ad. Can you tell me what section the page 3 is in? I saw it last week but cannot find it in yesterday's paper.
