What is going on with the price of lemons??

How much are they where you live? They were 5 for a dollar until the past month. Now they are 52 cents each! I can buy avocados cheaper than that!

Limes on the other hand are 10 for a dollar.

  • Supply of them is probably running low. I believe they are harvested late in the year. So supply and demand comes into play.

  • Avocados are almost $1 a piece in Idaho.
    Lemons are still cheaper but pricey

  • This is my next post to be poofed.....I'm complaining about the price of lemons.

    Avocados here are 50 cents each. I'm bummed about the lemons because I've recently discovered how delightful lemon zest is in just about everything. I refuse to pay that for them.

  • Ours run somewhere in the 50 cent range as well
    Avacadoes are $1.50 each though. No idea why

  • Lemons are $.79 each here.. it's insane. Limes always go on sale 5 for $1, so I usually just get those.

  • 3/$1.12, but avocados are $2 each.
