LocalFound 20th Dec 2017
Apparently ASDA are joining the vegetable pricing party tomorrow and dropping their prices to 10p.
Will update with more details in the morning when I visit my local
I expect the vegetables will be the ones that are 20p today, ie carrots, sprouts, broccoli and parsnips.

Can confirm this is national

I hope this is carrots, I have a load of reindeer that need feeding haha.
I really feel for the farmers. They must surely lose money competing to such low prices. This time of year everyone would purchase veg regardless of price. Always nice getting stuff on offer but do worry about putting people out of business or making them work extra hours earning less than minimum wage

That is a fair point indeed - lets hope the farmers aren't the ones suffering here and its coming out of the promotional budget of the superstores themselves.

They don't pay less to farmers, it's a loss leading technique to get you in store
Omg

Thanls OP. Any idea if this is this going to be on for the rest of the week?
I could do with a leek right now!
Thank you super deal shared.
Thanks for sharing. Will check tomorrow.
should i jump on the 20p offer or wait to see if one of the other supermarkets reacts with a lower price?
decisions, decisions, decisions
Brilliant news,everyone can stock up now on carrots.ive heard flamedeers just love em 🎅🎅🎅
If true and they're decent I'm gonna buy a load of parsnips, blanch and freeze them. Save a fortune on buying those god awful frozen parsnips.

Exactly, once your in there the Mrs will go crazy and buy everything you don't need.
Then when you have been in there 45 minutes and are a broken man and feel like crying after zig zagging around the store, and had 10 arguments. You will wonder off pick up the items you DO need, pop them in the trolley and suffer silently as you watch the pound signs racking up at the till.

All over 10p sprouts.

oh and make sure you pack the bags properly
No spuds?

Not necessarily true. Promotion costs are frequently shared.

It's called a Loss Leader. The supermarket will lose money by selling these but make it back on other things you purchase whilst in store.
Thanks for posting! Heat
Just got back from my local Asda - 2am Thursday 21st, all still 20p, maybe the tills wont update till 9am??
I own a cafe and have mash on the menu buy these potatoes and if kept right will last for weeks and weeks i normally pay £8 a sack now its only about £2.50 ish huge saving

That's a great idea but for the last time, stop calling me Blanch!
Shame in a way, imagine the food waste from non hduk members as they throw bags of unused veg away because they 'got a bargain' perhaps buy a bag for yourself then buy another and give to a homeless charity or similar
Nothing on their website this morning advertising it?
Spam is cheaper now, just sayin

I share the sentiment but as others have said it's probably a loss leader. But, I suspect that smaller independent fruit and veg traders WILL feel the impact of this policy. Hst too, people are being fed cheaply and that can't be a bad thing.
Gutted I went and grabbed the 19p aldi veg 😞

If carrots are going for 10p a kg that's actually cheaper than the sacks of rough carrots that are sold for horses. Normally pay £1.50 for a 10kg bag.
They were still 20p in my store this morning. Anyone else had any luck?
Great deal though I hope it is a loss leadee

Haha I love this!
I would imagine the farmers are still getting the normal price, it's the supermarkets that will be taking the loss. They'll be using the veg as loss leaders, getting you in the door guarantees you doing a big shop
Post comments have tickled me
Edited by: "jojo123" 21st Dec 2017
So nobody has even bought them for 10p?


So far I've seen one comment from someone who's actually been in ASDA that says they're 20p.

Still 20p in Asda poole this morning!
20p in Motherwell ASDA
Still 20p online as well.
Not sure if potatoes are included in the reductions now, they weren't yesterday with the 20p veg unlike the other supermarkets. Having said that still showing as 20p on selected veg online.
