Parmesan sale at Whole Foods, France 44
Attention pesto-makers: Parmigiano is on sale at Whole Foods Market in Minneapolis today for $9.99 a pound (normally $22.99 a pound) until 10 p.m. Grab some basil from the farmers market or your garden, and the only ingredient you'll have to splurge on is pine nuts (or save by subbing in pumpkin seeds). And in case you don't get to the grocery store today, we compared the Whole Foods discount with a few other metro cheese shops:
