I buy oranges by weight or by the weight
 
which one is correct? Similar expressions?

These expressions may be interchangeable in some instances.
When you use the article, you kind of imply that there's a specific weight you're looking for.

Without the article sounds a little more normal for me.

Another option, at least in AmE, would be "by the pound".
