Price check, please

On the road last week, I stopped at a big grocery store for lunch.  I like being able to get salad and vegetables at the ready-to-eat counter, not just standard fast food, and it's usually faster and cheaper than eating at a restaurant. 

I know that pricing can be erratic in such establishments -- either up or down -- and so I often look first at the price tags and then at the actual food.  Nevertheless, my eyebrows went up a bit to find this array of food in the case, each for the same price of $5.99 a pound:

Who knew that cucumbers were just as expensive as chicken?  I bought cole slaw instead.
