The Vegetable Index: How Much Do They Cost?
I'm curious. What is the going rate for the following basic fresh veg in your area?
Right now fresh vegetable costs look like this for me:
Carrots: $1 per pound
Mushroom, 8 ounces: $1.50
Tomatoes: $3 and up per pound
Green Peppers: $1.79 per pound
Avocados: $1.50 each
Broccoli: $3 for three stalks, about a pound
Cauliflower: $4 for a head
This is at the discount grocer where I shop. The little produce market costs more.
