I've noticed that milk and egg prices have fallen in my area. The Kroger near me has eggs for $.49 a dozen and gallon milk for $1.39, just wondering if anyone else has seen this happening and if they know why.

That's CHEAP for Kroger! Kroger is usually the most expensive grocery store in town here.

Stores like Kroger use milk and egg prices as loss leaders to get folks in the door and shopping. Other prices are adjusted to get the money back on loss leaders from the typical shopper. Supermarket inventory management and pricing is an extremely sophisticated art form these days and the big brands are very good at it.

Record number of chickens after many had to be killed due to bird flu in 2015(5.3 million in Iowa). Producers went overboard and now cheap eggs. Been buying Jumbo for 53/dozen here and milk has been coming back up. 2%/2.12

Ya, we have a small hobby flock of free range chickens. Our eggs probably cost about $10/dozen after you factor in all the expenses.

Mmmmm eggs. I could easily go through 6 a day. Couple for breakfast, some hard boiled with salad, some spicey pickled eggs and summer time lot of egg salad sandwiches and Amish potato salad. Glad they are cheap tight now

To address the OP's question, prices for these commodities are lower by me also.

A few weeks ago, eggs were down to $0.02/egg. So a dozen was $0.24 and 18 eggs was $0.36.

Prices are coming back up, but are still between $0.04 and $0.06/egg.

Milk has been lower priced as well.

Well, the organic eggs are still $5.00/dozen.... Probably not flying off the shelves at that differential.

Both of these items are priced below cost.
It may be that Krogier is returning to these old-school loss-leaders.
Doesn't matter, since you can get eggs and milk cheaply and you can skip the higher markup stuff.
Buy what's on sale and plan your menus around that.
That's how we shop.

Still paying $6 for a gallon of organic milk and $7 for two dozen organic pasture raised eggs. $7 is a bargain thanks to Costco.


It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that ain't so.
