What are food prices like where you are ? And where are you ?
We found food to be very cheap in Little India Singapore/ Czez Republic but very very expensive in Switzerland - hardly buying anything here - A cabbage is almost 6 francs , meat is a luxury here ... We were buying meat elsewhere about 3 Euro for the 2 of us ,here its about 16 francs almost $20
I live in Fayetteville, NC. I think food prices are reasonably close to the rest of the country. Though I think the food prices in the country are significantly higher than they should be, at least it's fair.
I'm in Taipei, Taiwan and have to say that the food prices here are excellent. Food is a passion and everything is sold as fresh as possible. Fresh meat and seafood are really cheap and vegetables are around a dollar a kilo. It's great that the Taiwanese don't like to eat chicken breast because it can be the cheapest cut, whereas places like Australia can be extortionate. To be honest though, we hardly ever cook because it's so cheap to buy outside. A typical meal will only cost around $3.
However, it's not all good news. The lack of dairy farms in Taiwan has made the price of milk around $2 to $3 per liter. Not good for my morning cornflakes.
I'm in San Antonio, Texas, and food prices are very reasonable here. We have a lot of competition, including big box grocery stores, smaller markets, and specialty grocery stores.
Im in Melbourne (Australia)and the food is quite expensive the supermarkets Meat is very very expensive. the butcher meat is not to bad..but if you to wholesale its a lot cheaper..veggie is quite cheap if you go for the fresh ones..the pack are dear.
I'm from Barbados in the Caribbean, but I'm currently spending the next few months living in Recife, Brazil. In Barbados the food prices are pretty alright, but some imported items can be pretty pricey. I often compare the prices of things here in Brazil to prices back home in Barbados.
Some things are very affordable - you can get a six pack of yogurt cups for R$2,50 which is like $1.25 US. I love chicken nuggets, so I buy a box of fifteen-twenty pieces for around R$4 ($2 US). the basics like bread, rice, spaghetti etc are all very low priced.
Yet, I've seen a simple tin of tuna cost almost R$6 - 8! Most of the brands in the supermarkets here are local, and some of the imported North American and European brands can be pretty expensive.
Fruits and veggies here are affordable in the supermarket, but I hear they're even cheaper from the street vendors. I definitely have to try this and see if it's true!
I'm in France at the moment but usually in England. We compare prices often as we holiday here. Wine is still much cheaper here than in England but even so it's gone up a lot. Meat has always been more expensive here but I would say generally that the day to day shop is quite good here. Luxuries are much more expensive than in England, but white goods are not.
Living in England has become much more expensive over the past year; fruit & veg, meat and all the essentials have rocketed. Money doesn't go anywhere near as far as it used to in England.
I think the French have more disposable income than we do, however, they are beginning to moan, too, that prices are rising too quickly.
Surprisingly, the economy in Peru is going strong and in recent years the middle class has grown. People are passionate about Peruvian cuisine and it's easy to find a variety of fresh, local ingredients in many of the big cities. Beef is the most expensive at $3 US/Kilo for the cheapest cut. Fresh veggies are very inexpensive. I buy a large bagful of veggies most weeks for around $7 US. Fruit is usually cheap although that can vary depending on the area. For example, the cost of jungle fruit that has to be transported to another area rises quickly because of the fuel it takes to get it there.
Dairy can be a bit more expensive with cheese being one of the pricier items, although it can be found at a better price in the dairy-producing regions. Imported items have always been costly. Food sold on the streets is very affordable. In large cities there are a variety of restaurants to choose from, but prices range from affordable to very expensive. Guinea pig is a delicacy that is costly in local restaurants. A roasted guinea pig usually starts at $10 US!
I know our prices are nothing compared to the cost of food in Europe. When we were in France, we were better off buying cheese and wine than fresh fruit or vegetables.

Has anyone here made or eaten bison meat before? I recently tried some 100% bison hot dogs as well as I made pot roast using a bison chuck roast. I was happy with both of them.
