Attention all shoppers ... it's going to cost a bit less to shop at Whole Foods.

Amazon is again lowering its prices on hundreds of products at whole foods - with its main focus on produce.

Customers will save an average of 20 percent off select items, including greens, tomatoes and fruits. 

Here are three items you'll see with lower prices:

LARGE YELLOW MANGOES

ORIGINAL PRICE TAG: $1.50/EA.

NEW PRICE TAG: $1/EA.

MIXED-MEDLEY CHERRY TOMATOES

ORIGINAL PRICE TAG: $3.99/12 OZ.

NEW PRICE TAG: $3.49/12 OZ.

ORGANIC BUNCHED RAINBOW CHARD

ORIGINAL PRICE TAG: $3.49/EA.

NEW PRICE TAG: $1.99/EA.

Amazon is also doubling the number of weekly deals for prime members, and will give those people an additional 10% off hundreds of sale items throughout Whole Foods' stores.

For the month of April, here are five deals prime members can look for on a weekly basis:

  • Organic asparagus
    • $2.99/lb, save $2
  • Organic strawberries
    • $2.99/lb, save $2
  • Sumo Citrus
    • $2.49/lb, save $1.50
  • Air-chilled, no-antibiotics-ever whole chicken
    • $1.79/lb, save at least 40%
  • Spiral sliced ham:
    • $3.99/lb, save at least 33%

Whole Foods CEO John Mackey says that more price reductions are on the horizon as previous price cuts at Whole Foods by Amazon have resulted in a notable sales bump for the chain.

This move is part of Amazon's push deeper into the grocery business, a business that has been dominated by its rivals.

When Amazon acquired whole foods back in 2017, the company began lowering prices at the food retailer and those deep price cuts led to a 25 percent increase in customer traffic.

Shopping at Whole Foods (WFM) is going to get a little cheaper.

Amazon (AMZN - Get Report)  will reduce prices on hundreds of items, with an average savings of 20%, at Whole Foods for the third time since the tech giant acquired the food retailer in 2017.

The Wall Street Journal was the first to report the news.

The company will mainly focus on lowering the prices in the fresh produce department. Whole Foods said it would reduce the price of large yellow mangoes to $1 each, while mixed-medley cherry tomatoes will now cost $3.49 for a 12 oz. container. And organic bunched rainbow chard is down to $1.99.

Additionally, Amazon's Prime members will be able to save more than ever before at Whole Foods with double the number of exclusive weekly Prime Member deals and deeper discounts. Over the next few months, customers can expect more than 300 Prime member deals on some of the season's most popular items.

Here are 5 items Prime members can expect deals on for the month of April:

  • Organic asparagus: $2.99/lb, save $2
  • Organic strawberries: $2.99/lb, save $2
  • Sumo Citrus: $2.49/lb, save $1.50
  • Air-chilled, no-antibiotics-ever whole chicken: $1.79/lb, save at least 40%
  • Spiral sliced ham: $3.99/lb, save at least 33%

The move is part of Amazon's deeper push into the grocer business, a business that is dominated by rivals Walmart  (WMT - Get Report)  and Kroger (KR - Get Report) . Amazon also reportedly is working on opening a separate grocery chain that will have prices more in line with Walmart and Kroger by the end of the year.
