Angelo Caputo’s Fresh Markets
For the best deals on fruits and vegetables, Angelo Caputo’s Fresh Markets, with seven locations, specializes in bargain-priced products at the peak of ripeness, as in, you better use what you buy in the next few days. At mainline stores, you might pay a buck or more for a red pepper; at Caputo’s, a buck will buy a pound. Want an even better deal? On the west wall of the produce section, there are boxes filled with fruits and vegetables for as little as three dollars for five pounds. These, you use on the day you buy them.
