View Full Version : How much are Avocados in your area?
02-15-2008, 07:12 PM
I live in California, Home of the Avocado :D, and I always wonder how much people pay for them in other parts of the country/world.
I can usually get large haas avocados for $1.29 median price. A lot of times they are on sale for cheaper.

i live in south philadelphia where we have a large mexican community. in the mexican market type area theyre about 1.25 & they are always RIPE. it makes me so happy to always be able to get a ripe avocado round the corner.
i've never seen them cheaper than that.
02-15-2008, 07:15 PM
it depends upon the store for where i'm at. but on average about the same price, give or take a few cents. and i live in TN

I'm in BC, Canada, & just got some organic ones from our co-op for 89 cents each! & they were a nice size, & soooo much more flavorful than non-organic!
We could get as many or as few as we wanted for that price! Wish I'd gotten more!

I'm in New England and they are $1.99 per avo in my town--a ridiculous price as far as I'm concerned. :mad: This is a major peeve of mine. And they are never ripe.

The organic ones are $1.49-$1.99 around here in Quebec, Canada. I think non organic is $0.99 but I'm not sure, I only get those the rare times I really want one and they're out of organic.

They're $1.45 for Haas here in upstate NY.
02-15-2008, 09:03 PM
usually $1.99 at the market for organic, sometimes they go as low as $1.29 or $.99 when they're trying to get rid of them. and trader joes here sells them four for $4.50 or so (organic). that's the haas variety. we never see the big green ones organic here but they're about $1.50 - $2 conventional.

I just bought some for 2 bucks each.:eek: They are organic, but the
non- organic ones were the same price. (Syracuse, New York)
02-15-2008, 09:44 PM
2 for a dollar for the regular size. sometimes cheaper.
02-15-2008, 10:17 PM
It varies, can be $2 each...what I've seen lately is 2/$5
02-15-2008, 10:39 PM
I just bought two today and they were $2.98 each (organic). I think that is soooo expensive!
Oh, and that was a "sale" price!
02-15-2008, 10:40 PM
i'm in bc canada as well. and i pay between 89 cents and $1.30 each.

In Michigan the regular avos are usually 3 for $5, the Haas, omg forget about it, $2.50+
02-16-2008, 01:45 AM
Even here in sunny SoCal there is quite a lot of variation.
Yesterday at SoPas farmer's market, I paid 50 cents a piece for three perfectly ripe Bacons. Hass were $1 each from the same grower. I love MacArthurs (ugly but delicious), but they can be $3 a piece(!)
Let's not even discuss WHole Foods.
While visiting family, I saw big Hass avos at Harris Teeter in Durham, NC 2 weeks ago for $6 a piece. Gak!
2 for $5 in my part of NH.

Small organic ones are $2.59 at Whole Foods OR small non-organic ones are 5/$1 at Walmart Supercenters. Needless to say, in this situation I get the non-organic...that's a crazy, crazy price for small organic avocados, don't ya think?

Here in Toronto I have a 24 hour produce stand right by my house, they generally cost $0.99 each, or I bought some yesterday at the grocery store, 4 for $3.50.
It's so weird, cause I just moved here from Florida, where there was lots of fresh produce, but I can generally get stuff cheaper here. Go figure! Young coconuts 24 hours a day for $0.99, I was never getting that back home!
That's a great price, usually I can only find that if there is a huge pile of them and they are REALLY ripe, about to go off. That's the best!

when i was in san antionio tx they where .50 for med ones (non oraganic) i am in colorado now and they aer 1.20-2.00 for organic and 1.00 for non organic.. depends on the store
02-16-2008, 04:40 PM
I am in Toronto, and I pay about average 1.29 for organic. It really varies though - if I want to go to whole foods, I can pay 2 dollars or more (saw them there once for 2.69 for ONE) or I can go to a local market and get them for 89 cents (non organic). Same with most fruits/veggies though.
By the way, I never buy avocadoes ripe - I buy them 2 at a time and usually have 6 or 7 ripening at home (different stages) so I can always have ripe ones. I find buying ripe can end up in some being bad. I never get bad ones this way!! :D

I'm in southeast Michigan and I just bought 4 avos this morning for $1.99 each. They are organic but the non organic were the same price. All four are pretty ripe, so we will probably have to eat them this weekend.

Here in Texas they are about .50 each...and usually that means brown spots but lately...every avocado I have purchased has been perfect!!! yummm....
02-18-2008, 11:24 AM
now they are $1 each!!!!
02-19-2008, 05:49 AM
Last week, I couldn't believe that our Super Walmart had a giant bin of beautiful unripe avocados for $.50 each!!! I bought 20 of them and have been keeping them in the refrigerator so they don't ripen too quickly. I take out 1 or 2 a day to ripen and they have been delicious. Of course, I'm sure they aren't organic, but I scrub them up and they've been great. I don't think I'll find too many bargains like that though!!! I'm really enjoying them.:)

Toronto, Canada - 99 c small delicious Mexican Rivas not organic,
Organic are about 1.50 C but usually too ripe.
1.99 for the big ones, 1.50 for the small ones, 1.99 for organic <--- in the big store
1.29 in the small store that has a lot of produce, but they're always icky when I open them
2.49 at the organic/natural food shop, and they're always in great condition
I'm on an island off the coast of Massachusetts.
When I was in FL, I noticed they were about 1.29 in Jacksonville or sometimes on sale for as little as .89 with combo deals. (but not organic; there was very little organic available as far as I could tell when visiting my mom)
