To pay nearly $4 for a single avocado in a country where they're grown is nuts, imo.

Just say NO to overpriced supermarket produce and patronize the local markets.

I agree!  We prefer the local produce -- always the best in flavor and price.

I never buy from El Rey or Romero unless I need something I can't find elsewhere.

We recently were in the US (Houston), and could not resist taking a picture of the large Haas avocados in an HEB store. Note the price. These avocados were imported from Mexico.

It is reasonable to believe that HEB was making a profit on these avocados, including with higher labor costs (compared to local store labor costs). Further, experience tells me that Haas avocados are more expensive than non-Haas. I will grant that economies of scale may play a role here.

I leave to the viewer their conclusion about local pricing structure.
