The avocado market is at a historically high level, and crops are low. Expect avocado prices to rise!

Partially due to the demand for avocado toast, the overall enthusiasm for avocados, and storms hitting Mexico and South America, the demand for avocados are high and the supplies are low.  Anyone that has taken Economics 101 can predict the result; expect prices to rise!

Typically, when the market gets like this avocados would be shipped from Chile, however, the European market is paying top prices for that crop. The next Mexican crop will be pushed back from late September due to rain, harvesting should begin in October and provide relief for the market.
