Maybe my situation is unusual but at the local grocers I pay 98 yen for an avacodo, 128 at the supermarket. 298 for four apples or a punnet of grapes. 112 for peppers. I don't find that expensive at all, even if it may work out a few cents more expensive than home. I'm really curious how much you're all paying in other regions.
It's mostly a bit more expensive than home, but not budget breaking. Avocados I found to be the *exact* same price at home and some things a little bit more. I look for sales and try to get what's in season. But peaches? There is no hope for finding those cheap... I think the best I found this year was 2 for 598 yen. Oof.
My favorites (watermelon and raspberries) are a whole lot more money than at home. I get a chunk of watermelon for what my mom pays for a whole one. Ah well. Eating healthily can cost just as much as eating unhealthily. All those fried foods at the stores? The bakeries and snack aisles? It all adds up!
