Grapes, raspberries on sale in August

Good news for grape lovers: Grape production doubles from late July to August, says James Parker, facility team leader for the global produce for Whole Foods Market. Prices will start to drop 50 cents to $1 per pound in August, depending on how far you are from the grower, he says.

You'll also get more choice and flavor for your dollar, Parker says. "Grapes will also get much sweeter, and you'll also see local and esoteric varieties -- Champagnes, Concords and muscadines."

And, depending on Mother Nature -- and your location -- you might find bargains on raspberries in August. Raspberry production increases, but prices are volatile because these berries "are very weather-dependent," he says.
