Harris Farm Markets makes fun of the bizarre fruit sale signs found in every store – so can you see the problem?
- A TikTok user has highlighted strange ‘sale’ signs he saw at Harris Farm Markets
- Musician Benny Hill used song to poke fun at fruit ‘discounts’
- Video shows supermarket ‘deals’ offer little to no savings on fruit
Harris Farm Markets has been mocked for its fruit sale signs that don’t actually show discounts.
Musician Benny Davis drew attention to the supermarket chain’s “deals” via a clip on TikTok.
His video compares Harris Farm’s “special” signs which show that buying multiple items costs the same as buying just one, unlike those at other supermarket chains.

“Why do you have these @harrisfarmmarkets signs,” he captioned the now-viral TikTok.
Davis begins his song with ‘Harris Farm, why do you have these signs? You know it [sic] in your stores all the time”.
He then films a montage of the various signs at a local Harris farmers’ market, with the comedic singer occasionally appearing in frame to appear alongside a “chord”.
“Everything from avocado, berries to peach – four bucks for two or two bucks each,” he continued.

‘Harris Farm, why do you have these signs? They make me double every time. Every time I see them I stop for a minute and wonder why it’s there if there isn’t a sale in it.
Davis goes into great detail about the math behind store sales and how discounts don’t make logical sense.
He then wonders if the company is trying to “trick” people into the false belief that there is actually a sale.
‘Harris Farm, why are you doing this? Are you trying to get people to buy more? Thinking there is a sale when there isn’t. Are your staff having just a little fun?

“What’s going on, Mr. Harris?” I think you might take the p***. I’m not saying the signs are a lie, but I don’t understand why? he added.
The musician’s followers largely agreed with his queries about the odd chords, while others said they enjoyed Davis’ tune.
One TikTok user wrote: “I mean you hit the nail on the head – it’s to get people to buy more.”
“Here for the Harris Farm PR response,” another commented.
