Q: Avocados in Chinese markets?

I know they grow avocados in China, but are they available in markets? Are they expensive?

When I was in Chengdu, I actually found avocados. It was in a big fruit and veggie market. They were like 30 RMB each...so pretty expensive but worth it!

I've recently moved to Guangzhou and saw avocados at the local Metro wholesale store. I'm not sure about the price, but there are Metro stores throughout China.

Avocados are expensive as hell here. In the markets I've seen like 68-100rmb per 500g. But in Shanghai, there is a lady that is known as the Avocado Lady who has a market and sells them cheap. Occasionally some street vendors will have them for 8-10rmb a piece as well.

Avocados are everywhere try the market place and those newly built japanese style market places. Any Jenny Lou's should carry them and the cheapest you will find it is around 7 to 8 rmb. The most expensive one's I saw were probably around 12 to 13 kuai.

Sanyuanli Market (三源里菜场) near Liangmaqiao is the place to go. Bought avocados for 8RMB a piece last week, but I think I could have gotten them cheaper.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
