Cheapest avocados in Philadelphia?

Ryanoceros | Sep 6, 2003 04:55 PM

Dear Chowdogs,

Can anyone reccomend a cheap source for inexpensive avocados in the Philadelphia area? I am running a small burrito stand here at Haverford College and we go through about ten avocados a week, a significant expense but one which we cannot afford to cut from our product. I have never seen avocados at the italian market (maybe I'm not looking closely enough), and shelling out $1.50 apiece at a supermarket isn't so good. Is there some kind of mexican market, or maybe somewhere we can buy them by the box? I am also looking for inexpensive mexican cheese... We have been using Jack recently, and that works too.

Thank you for your collective wisdom. Anyone who can make our venture more viable will be treated to a free burrito.
