The combination of the late ??ummer fruits and vegetables, and
the early arrival of the fall crops insures to Washington consumers a
wide variety from which selections can be made. Those who have not
prepared a* supply of home-canned foods for use during the winter
are urged not to delay, as the season for many of the popular favorites
Is drawing to a close nnd the commercially packed products will prob
ably cost twice as much as those canned by the housewife.
The local market is now well supplied with several varieties of
grapes, which are selling at reasonable prices. From California Mal
agas and Tokays are the varieties that are most generally noted, and
New oYrk is supplying the Concord, Delaware and Niagara.
Housewives ??hould arrange wiih their dealers for a supply of
cabbage, as at the present prices It offers an excellent opportunity
to prepare a quantity of sauerkraut at a minimum cost iur us? during
The fair prices to consumers given helow^. cover those charged by
both "cash-and carry" and 'credit-and-delivery'* retailers. "Cash-and
carry" retailers should sell near the lowest figure given. I'nleea other
wise stated, all prices are for produce of good average quality, poorer
grades should sell for less.
If consumers are churged, on any day, prices in excess of those
