Shop The Fresh Produce Aisle at Aldi
The produce aisle at Aldi features the most common fruits and vegetables. You probably won’t find anything exotic here unless it’s a special buy.
Aldi has recently focused on bringing in more organic products. Most weeks you’ll find organic grape tomatoes and baby carrots, salad mixes and spinach.
Lettuces (bagged mixes are refrigerated) in the fresh produce aisle include spring mix, garden salad, Italian, romaine hearts and artisan red and green lettuce.
Rounding out the salad fixings, you’ll find tomatoes, celery, cucumbers, onions, radishes and mushrooms. Other vegetables include zucchini and winter squash, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, asparagus and broccoli.
Fruit selections include apples, oranges, grapefruit, grapes, watermelon, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, lemons, limes, avocado, bananas and kiwi.
Aldi registers do not have scales, so produce is either sold by the packaged or bagged, or per unit.
Lemons and limes, apples, oranges, potatoes (white, red or sweet), onions, mushrooms, tomatoes and peppers are pre-packaged or bagged.
Corn, zucchini, are examples where there will be a certain number per pack, i.e. 4-pack of sweet corn.
Per unit pricing will apply mostly to fruit like cantaloupes, watermelons, pineapples, mangoes (i.e., 49¢ ea.), kiwi, avocados (i.e., 3/$1.00), etc. Berries are sold by the half-pint or pint.
Bananas are one fresh produce exception that is sold by the pound. The banana are in bags with an attached label listing the weight and price. The same with grapes.
