It is hard to believe it is already August! There are so many delicious fruits and vegetables in season right now. With all of the great deals on these items, it is the perfect time to stock up based on the August Grocery Store Trends.

We have been busy freezing and canning peaches, green beans, and tomatoes! I love being able to stock up on good deals and preserve items from our garden. It really helps our grocery budget when the items are no longer in season.

If you are looking for a source that constantly updates, check out the National Fruit & Vegetable Retail Report issued by the government every couple of weeks. This report gives the top 10 fruits and vegetables and the national percentage of which fruits and vegetables are in store ads.
