Where is Best for Christmas Veg?

Ask a Question

Most places will have offers do you buy based on that or is there one place you buy from every year- which is best quality? TIA

the last few years we have been to Aldi not because it’s cheaper because it has longer dates on and last longer than from other supermarkets.

Faye1 you're lucky, my local Aldi is appalling for fruit and veg, even with a long date it can go mouldy between leaving the store and getting home

Dilligaf That is my experience too but it can be very good on occasion but quality generally is lower than most other supermarkets I find. I used to think Morrisons are best but they haven't been in my local store recently so would probably go with Tesco as the best quality veg overall. For frozen veg definitely Tesco as my local store is very large with a decent selection and some great prices.

I go to our local morrisons or tesco for ours, we've found that their veg always lasts long and is reasonably priced. We buy either the wonky veg or the value range.

OneeyedRaven strange as they always have them in our store. Maybe they didn't sell well in the area so they discounted them?

Aldi, veg on offer from Monday 16th Dec for 19p, never had a problem with their fresh vegetables. I will pop in and bulk cook some vegetable soup to go in the freezer, perfect timing as nearly run out. So handy for a quick lunch. But i'll also buy their vegetables for the Christmas period too.

Generally Tesco as we find (they have already started their 29p Festive Veg) it's usually decent quality produce, unlike my local Aldi where we find their produce poor quality even thou it may be a few pennies cheaper.

I bought some veg from M&S yesterday at only 40p a bag, it’s their market price deal at the moment. It’s obviously selling well because I picked up the last bag of sprouts. The veg all looked good quality so will keep in the fridge to extend its life.

Went into Tesco in Dorchester today and they had quite a lot of veg at 29p. I bought some brussels, couple of cauliflowers and some carrots. They also had some large bags of potatoes. The cauliflowers were a little small but looked good quality.

Handy too that I had a £4 off £20 voucher to use and with clubcard points too it was a very cheap shop. Seemed like I had a huge amount of stuff for my £22/£18. Yes I'm so tight fisted that I try to spend close to the voucher value to get the most discount as a percentage.
