George is right, transportation costs can make a big difference.  Right now lettuce costs us anywhere from $1.39 to $1.69, depending on type.  Have to go to Costco/Price Club tomorrow and will check out their prices.  I usually buy a bag of 6 romaine hearts for about $5.00 + I think.  They keep changing the number in the bag so the price changes.  I just know that it is cheaper in the long run to buy them at Costco and I like it that they are the hearts so no wastage.  I will often buy large bags of peppers, etc. too and go stirfry crazy for a week or so.  DH has finally started to enjoy crunchy veggies, especially in stirfries.

Depends very much on the type of potato.  DH likes Yukon Gold and because last
year's harvest was way down, I had to pay $2.99 for a 5 lb bag.  I usually pay
that for a 10 lb bag.  Last time I bought a 50 lb. bag of regular taters it
cost be about $5 or $6. >>

Okay, no complaining I pay $.89 a pound of Yukons!  10# of just Idaho potatoes
this time of year are only $1.99.

Think something is wrong?  Lettuce is only $ .50 for butter, red leaf, etc.
