    Did the price of grass-fed beef increase suddenly in your area?

    Around here we are suddenly seeing prices around $8.99/lb., when it was $6.99/lb. and the highest being $7.99/lb. Whereas prices of conventional beef haven't budged at all. Does anyone know what's causing this? Is it happening where you live? I see more chicken and pork on our plates in our future.

    I pay 4.99 lb for gf ground beef at Trader Joes. It's 7.99 at Whole Foods. Tons more for steaks or other cuts.

    That is a great price at Trader Joes. I haven't been able to find any gf in my area. Where is this Trader Joes?

    Miata, they are all over the place. They also have gf strips and rib eyes. Just google them and you can find the closest one to you.

    Not on gf ground beef here. Just bought a bunch at WFoods and it's still $7.99/lb for 95/5 ground beef and $9.99/lb for 96/4 ground bison.

    Squid went up about a month and a half ago from $7.99 to $8.99/lb. But I love it, so c'est la vie.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    Oh bummer. You can subscribe to their emails/newsletter and you'll get a heads up on their Friday only and weekend sales. Something in their meat or seafood dept is always deeply discounted on Friday.

    I go to a couple of Trader Joes in Silicon Valley all the time and am always looking for grass fed beef -- but no luck. Maybe I'm just blind. I'll try again today and ask a clerk.
