Get more watermelon for less. Buying a whole watermelon is more economical than buying watermelon halves or quarters. A whole sixteen to twenty-pound watermelon costs as little as $3.99 or less. Watermelon cuts average around forty-nine cents per pound. That adds up to be a substantial difference.

If you cannot eat a whole watermelon yourself, buy the whole melon and give half of it to a friend or neighbor or puree it in a blender and freeze in ice cube trays or make Popsicles with it. It is a refreshing treat on a hot day. Here are some of the produce deals around central Ohio for the week of Monday, July 25.
