Although we have been in the Smart & Final Extra! on Figueroa Street several times, we have never really paid attention to the produce. We normally do all our grocery shopping at the Ralph’s Supermarket on 9th Street, but today we ran into Smart & Final to grab a few items and discovered their awesome produce department. They have a great selection of fruit and vegetables… and prices seem to be much more reasonable compared to Ralph’s prices.
Today we found celery for .99 and navel oranges at .69 a pound. Okay, we will probably still do most of our grocery shopping at Ralph’s, but we will do our produce shopping at Smart & Final. According to the Smart & Final Extra! website, the store combines the high quality fresh produce of a farmer’s market, the low prices of a discount grocer and the large club size products of a traditional club store. But you don’t need to buy large sizes or multi-packs when you shop at Smart & Final Extra! They also carry thousands of items in smaller, convenient sizes.
