Mexico: Avocado cost soars: 45, 50 or even 70 pesos per kilo

Avocado prices soared. It is about 70 pesos in supermarkets and mass merchandisers, while in the Mesón and in small markets the lowest price is 45 pesos. It is very expensive. Housewives do not buy it. They buy tomatoes, peppers and onions, but they will be just missing the avocado.

By its high cost, this succulent product has already become unaffordable for people of Monterrey, and they only hope that it can soon become more affordable to buy.

And why not, if the price per kilo is unattainable: it is listed, at least at 45 pesos in the supply centers, in the Mesón and in small markets, and up to 75 pesos in large supermarkets.

One of the reasons why it is expensive is that there is little in the domestic market, because much of the production is exported.

In contrast, other essential products for people of Monterrey are very cheap, as is the case of chili, onion and tomato, which are traded between 5 and 10 pesos per kilo.

In the Mesón, most of the places that sell avocado, there are no customers, due to the high cost, customers prefer not to buy it.
