Fruit King

Today was Fruit King day! For those of you who don’t already know, The Fruit King is like a giant garage sale for fruits and veggies!! If you live in Corpus Christi consider making a trip here part of your regular week’s schedule…seriously! We’ve found that it can be hit or miss…as JR would say, “It’s either a grand slam or a strike-out!” I’ve had WAY more grand slams than strike-outs, for sure….and I’ve decided that it’s totally worth the trip to find out since the prices are INSANE! Check out some of the awesome deals we found today in the photos!

I thought it was high time to introduce Rebekah, my sister (whose living with us here in Corpus now…whoo-hoo!), to the Fruit King…needless to say, she was blown away.  In her words, “It was like finding out a secret!”  We each came home with a ton of awesomeness for a fraction of what we would’ve spent at HEB…don’t worry, HEB, I still love you too! To sum it up: 2 cucumbers, 4 apples, 2 red onions, 3 white onions, 2 yellow onions, 2 red bell peppers, 4 jalapenos, 2 grapefruit, 2 oranges, 5 garlic, 5 lbs of bananas, 2 giant bags of giant carrots (I’ve seriously never seen carrots this big!), 1 bag of green beens, 1 bag of spinach, 5 little avocados, 5 containers of red and yellow cherry tomatoes, and 2 lbs of tomatoes ALL for a measly $19.70!!!! 

This wasn’t supposed to be an advertisement, but it turned into one, so what the heck….Visit any one of three Fruit King locations..4702 Ayers Street, 3401 Morgan Avenue, or 1607 Morgan Avenue to find the pot ‘o gold!!!

P.S. I didn’t know there were 3 locations til just now!! Could my life get any better?!

  1. WOW….PLEASE and THANK YOU. I am so going there. What days are the best days to go? And which location do you normally hit up?

    I’m all over that!

  2. Wow!! I caught myself talking out loud in the store this evening hoping someone would hear me and consider lowering the prices. I have refused to buy certain things because I just can’t bring myself to spend what they are asking. I was saying ” Are you kidding me? “What in the world are they thinking?” I’m not sure what came over me. Anyway, it makes me happy that you have a Fruit King and can enjoy such wonderful yummy stuff! I,on the other hand, may have to start growing my own or come to Corpus…hm-mm I wonder which of those I will do?

  3. Seriously…this post makes me sick. I want a Fruit King!!!

    And by the way…welcome back to your blog! I hope you come again soon:)
