Passover Price List: Publix, Walmart, and Winn-Dixie

With Passover coming soon, it's time to start purchasing needed items for the holiday. But how do you do that *and* save money?

First, check out my tips on saving money on Passover food.

Second, base your meals this week on fresh local produce, dairy, and other items that don't require special Passover versions.  Salads and simply prepared meats are easy to make and don't require a lot of Passover-only ingredients.  Fruit makes a great dessert.

And third, check your prices before buying!  The stores have very different prices.  Today I went to Publix, Winn-Dixie, and Walmart to check their prices on Passover food.  Here's what I found in my area, South Florida:

item Publix Walmart Winn-Dixie
1 lb matzo N/A N/A $2.19
5 lb matzo $7.99 $12.99 $8.99
borscht $2.59 N/A $2.19
cake meal $4.59 N/A N/A
Coca-Cola N/A N/A $1.50
egg matzo $3.29 N/A $2.50
gefilte fish $5.99 $6.50 $6.99
horseradish $1.25 N/A $0.85
Kedem grape juice $2.50 $2.48 $2.89
macaroons $3.50 N/A $4.00
Manischewitz wine $4.49 N/A $3.99
matzo ball mix $1.79 $2.32 $1.30
matzo meal 16 oz $3.19 N/A $3.69
potato starch N/A N/A $4.00
whole wheat matzo $3.99 N/A $2.50

Of course, prices and availability may vary depending on location.  You can also try kosher food stores or warehouse stores for your Passover needs.

Use these tips to have a wonderful, but less expensive, Passover!
