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.

sorry, you are looking for avocados in Chengdu, not Beijing...

A:They're saying you should be in China already because entering China is pretty much impossible at the moment due to covid restrictions. This means schools can only recruit from people already in the country. Also, unless you have dual citizenship you probably wouldn't meet the visa requirements to teach (teach English that is, maybe you could teach other subjects, I don't know) in China. They have a native speaker requirement that means only people from certain countries will be accepted. The second point will probably get this post downvoted, any time you mention the native speaker requirement it brings out one or two angry thumbs - they don't seem to understand nobody on this forum makes the rules..... Anyway, my advice to you would be to look elsewhere. Between China's tough visa requirements and their even tougher covid measures it's pretty much impossible to go there now to teach. The good news is that other countries are dropping their covid restrictions and opening up again so there are probably still opportunities available to you. Good luck. -- Stiggs
