Quarterly I go with a friend who has a vendors listened to a restaurant supply store, not Sams or Gordon’s, but the kind where the guys walking around shopping are wearing their chef’s whites. Anyway, I thought you might find prices and shortages interesting. Obviously not a comprehensive list but what I noticed or bought #10 cans of fruit and vegetables up 50% from $6 something to $9 something a can #10 cans of beans up $1 from $5ish to $6ish dried beans and rice only being sold in 50 pound bags or larger, no 25 lb bags Paper plates up from $28 dollars for 1200 to $34 All frozen seafood up several dollars no matter size or kind Veggie burgers up from $80 for 100 to $104 Cheese up less than $1 per 5 lbs. Absolutely no sour cream in any size or brand and they usually have it even in 5 gallon buckets too, but none at all Chicken quarters $.99 lb, wings $1.99 lb but at least they had some, last two times I went they didn’t have any, legs/thighs $2.99 lb, boneless breasts $3.99 lb, no bone in breasts. These prices are a huge mark up. I regularly bought boneless breasts for $1.59 lb Pork loin had only gone up 30 cents to $1.69 lb Goat was up $10 a side There was no salad, usually they sold huge bags of various chopped salads, you could only find the ingredients to make salads sold whole. this is obviously not a comprehensive list as I didn’t check beef prices or frozen meat prices, just kind of ran off a few observations and our receipts. This was in southern Ohio
