Vegetables as we know them being cheap and abundant is a relatively modern development. A century ago, this was not the case.

I just bought chicken breast for $1.79/lb, drumsticks/thighs for $0.99/lb. Ribs for $1.99/lb. Boston Butt for $1.59/lb. Pork chops and white mushrooms also $2.99/lb. Apples were anywhere from $1.49 – $2.99/lb. Peppers were $2.99/lb. Haas Avocados are $2.50 each. Brussel sprouts $1.69/lb. Sweet onions $0.80/lb.

It really just depends on what meat and what produce. It also depends on fresh, frozen, or canned for produce.

Are we measuring by weight or serving? I get chicken thighs and legs at a very good price. Also, sirloin has been very reasonable. I don’t remember what I am paying for pork now.

Fruit and veggies vary a lot. I’ve seen honeycrisp apples as high as $4.49lb. I won’t buy them at that price. I’ve seen 3lb of Halo mandarines for $7.99, also too expensive in my opinion. I wait till I find them cheaper.

If you grow and or harvest your own meat it can be very inexpensive, but it depends on many variables.

You can also go into the woods and “get” your meat very cheaply with a proper license and the right tools. People call it barbaric, but those animals are: 1. Over breeding because we humans removed their natural predators 2. Live a healthy, natural life 3. Are healthier for us to consume 4. Are not factory farmed which is barbaric.
