Granadas más caras en días de mercado

November 30, 2016

On market days, pomegranates are more expensive than on other days.

  • Friday 1-80 euros
  • Saturday 2-40 euros
  • Monday 1-80 euro
  • Wednesday 2-80 euros

This fluctuation may be due to suppliers, but doubtful.

Why are pomegranates so expensive?

pomegranates on market stall in Monastiraki

In Lidl 79p each.

Off a market stall in Aldershot, three for a pound, but small pomegranates. About the size of an apple,

Waitrose two for £2-75.

Off the market stall in Guildford, two for a pound, but as large as a grapefruit. I weighed in M&S, half a kilo each.

In M&S no pomegranates. Only seeds in a tiny plastic box, works out at £20 per kg.

On the market in Winchester, no pomegranates. I asked the stall after they had closed. The answer was what I expected, too expensive.

To think,  a couple of weeks ago, I was picking pomegranates,  last week piled up on a market stall in Monastiraki, though I did not inquire the price.
