    I bought some peaches at the Evanston farmers market yesterday, and they were slightly bruised, and so I got two quarts for $5, and they were not bad. I got 10 huge peaches. I got them from K & K farms.

    The problem with supermarket peaches is that they have to pick them so green, or the chain will not take them. My Father when he was still living, he used to sell the majority of his peaches to a broker at the Benton Harbor Market who sold them to a Detroit chain. I think it was Farmer Jack's. If there was one ripe peach, they would often deny the load. This just did not sit right with him, and he got to the point that he only sold Sam the broker, the minimum amount allowable to keep him happy. Some years when he had an over abundance of peaches, he needed Sam to sell peaches too. He ended up selling most of his peaches either at his fruit stand, or to other people that had fruit stands in Michigan and Indiana.

    Now that my sister Annette, and her husband run the farm, they do not sell to any stores because they do not need to. She told me a few weeks ago, that she is selling all of her peaches either at the fruit stand or through upick, and she has 100 acres of peaches, and she has a full crop this year. Apparently her upick is doing really well this year. Last year she did not have upick, but everybody and their brother was canning, and so she sold lots of half bushel of peaches to canners at her fruit stand.

    Michigan peaches should be almost done for the year. Get them while you can at your local farmers market. Hope this helps, Nancy

    Jewel is finally coming back with a new free Saturday sampler this Saturday. It is going to be a 20 ounce bottle of coke zero sugar. I think I will pass on it.

    Hi- I was in the Wilmette Jewel on Green Bay last night, and they had Al Fresco seasoned ground chicken on sale for $1.99 through 10/12, for a 14 ounce package. It is normally $5.99. I also noticed today that there is a $2 off coupon for Al Fresco on J4U right now. I don't know what they would do with the overage. They also had Mighty Spark chicken and turkey burgers on sale for $1.99. There are two burgers in a package. They are also on sale through 10/12, and they are normally $7.49. Both of these are located near the clearance rack in the back of the store, near the dairy department. I don't know if they are that cheap only at that store, or whether they are on sale at the other locations.

    I also got five more Healthy Choice chicken wraps for $1.48, but I think I got the last five. They have had them marked down to $1.48 for several weeks, but the shelf tag says they are $2.99. When I scanned them they rang up $1.48. They were on clearance at several other Jewel stores a month ago, and so I decided to scan them to see if they were marked down too. I have probably purchased 20 of them at that price.

    The only other things on sale at Jewel this week that I am interested in are Thomas bagels and the strawberries. I also got a personalized price of $2.37 on milk. It is strange I got a personalized price of $3.39 on the Thomas bagels, but they are on sale for 2/$6 in the weekly ad. Hope this helps, Nancy

    A couple good finds on the Randhurst Jewel's clearance rack:
    * Matzoh meal. This was a surprise, as during Passover season, all they stocked was matzoh cake meal. With a 2023 expiration, I can have soup for years! (I don't have much shmaltz in my freezer, I've got brisket tallow and leaf lard though).
    * Organic Lemonade, 32oz for 99c - again a 2023 expiration. We've bought half gallon bottles for parties, and much of it sits around undrunk (or drunk adding needless calories), so these will be handy

    The Rolling Meadows Jewel has ground venison on sale for $4.99 a pound. I've had it a couple of times, and it's very nice.

    Jewel has a new WOD today. It is Health Warrior pumpkin seed bars. Say warrior to get it for free. Warning on a Facebook group I belong to, several people got it when it was a WOD a while back, and they both said it was awful.

    Don't forget about the Al Fresco seasoned ground chicken which is on sale for $1.99 at the Wilmette Jewel on Green Bay, and there is a $2 off coupon on J4U. It might be on sale at other Jewel stores too. It was in the back near the clearance and milk. I've had their chicken sausage, which Jewel no longer carries, and it was good. On the clearance bin, they also had lots of matzo meal and other kosher stuff reduced.

    I don't know how many people purchase this at Jewel, but I was at the Jewel on Green Bay in Wilmette last night, and I purchased a can of Hills Brothers half caff coffee which was on sale for $6.99. The sign also said there was a $2 coupon off for it on J4U. When I went to check out my $2 coupon did not come off. When I looked it up when I got home, I found out that I had clipped the coupon, and the coupon said it was good on cans, but when I clicked on the participating products, only the bags were listed. I just posted about this on Jewel's Facebook page, but I don't know if they will do anything about it. There is a drought in Brazil, and so coffee is supposed to be getting more expensive.

    Well I heard back from Jewel about the $2 coupon for the can of Hills Brothers coffee not being deducted, and they did get back to me. They asked for my phone number on my account and my email address, and they will look into this and get back to me.

    I am happy to report that Jewel looked into the problem with the Hill's Brothers coupon, and realized that I should have had $2 taken off my bill. The next time I shop at Jewel I will have an additional $2 taken off of my bill. It will show up as a customer service credit. It pays to post on Jewel's Facebook page if you are having problems with something. I got my problem resolved in probably four hours, which I did not think would happen on a weekend.

    I also made them aware of a problem they were not aware about, and saved grief for other shoppers. It sounds like they are going to correct this problem so it does not happen again.

    HI,

    I have had success messaging Jewel via their facebook page.

    By using the messaging, there is a history of interactions they can refer to at a glance.

    Regards,
