Went to Linden Hills and noticed that most produce was at least a dollar more per pound or unit than at Whole Foods.
It seems to me that Linden Hills prices rose once they moved - on every item. I only go to The Wedge when I need spices (and only in the early morning since getting in and out of that parking lot is sheer madness). Since I rarely buy produce there, I have not compared prices.
I realize Whole Foods is not at all in the model of co-operative buying and that I am comparing apples to appaloosas. Still, I was surprised at the difference.
Food prices are rising. Just wondering if co-ops are the leading edge of the rise.
