The News, Frederick, Md., Thursday, November 29, 1951 Weekly Food Review »y Tfc* Associated Press Retail prices of most pork items, «ggs and several fresh vegetables eased this week. Butter climbed one to-six cents a pound in many places, reflecting a tighter supply situation. Consumer food 'buying generally was reported slow following the Thanksgiving feast shopping last week. "The budget-anxious housewives are digging in for awhile after the big splurge, and you'll find a lot of price-trimmming on the more moderate-priced items in stores as a result," said one big chain's sales manager. The sharpest reductions reported were for various pork cuts. Center cut pork chops, for exam- ple, were marked dowzi two to as much as 15 cents'* pound in some marketing centers. Pork consequently was high on the lists of advertised specials planned for the coming weekend by major independents and store chains. Pork loins were the cheapest of the season in some places. The Agriculture Department headlined pork (and apples) as most-plentiful foods for thrifty buying this week. The hogs coming to market now are part of last spring's crop of nearly 64 million head, the second largest on record. The seasonal peak in pork production probably will come next month. Top grade eggs were off two to four cents a dozen in most stores after weeks of working higher. Market analysts said eggs might ease a little more In the next couple of weeks before heading upward again shortly before Christmas. Most beef items were unchang ed this week, although prime rib roasts fell back as much as eight or nine cents a pound in a few places to sell at about the same level as choice grade cuts. 'Poultry prices were mostly steady, with only a few scattered and minor reductions in chicken fryers and broilers. Slow demand rather than any significant change 'in supplies was responsible for small declines in several fresh produce Items, Including snap beans, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, celery, lettuce, sweet potatoes and grapefruit. Tangerines, however, were off sharply as shipments climbed seasonally, and this fruit along with Red Emperor grapes were specials being promoted this week by many storekeepers. Lettuce was being offered in a wide quality range, with the bulk of it only fair. Tomatoes were a little higher as receipts dwindled. Among the weekend shopping i special* being offered by major chains were: Vanned soups and corned beef hash, baked beans, oranges, grapefruit, fresh broccoli, grape jam and pineapple juice. Oranges, raisins and turkeys top the Agriculture Department's national list of plcntlfuls for the month of December. Others on the list: apples, canned a n d frozen concentrated orange juice, dried prunes, broilers and fryers, pork, frozen whiting and ocean perch fillets, canned tuna, cottage .cheese, non-fat dry milk solids, and honey.
