Meatless Monday: Neat Tool for Comparison Shopping

Seems like I’ve been on full-on econ nerd mode these last few days but I just couldn’t help myself! A few weeks ago, the Economics Research Service, a division of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, released a really neat interactive data visualization tool.

This tool allows you to compare the average price for practically any fruit or vegetable you can imagine, including dry fruits and fruit-based products like applesauce.

I had fun playing around with this tool and thought it could be of use when you’re planning your shopping trip. Produce can be one of the most expensive items on a veg*ns shopping list, but this comparison chart hopefully can help you get the most bang for your buck!
