The shopping experience for the average Malawian is quite different from what we're used to. Most Malawians rarely set foot inside a supermarket. Most shopping is done at open air markets, where goods are sold from ramshackle stalls such as this one, in Mzuzu in northern Malawi. Malawi's warm, mild climate is ideal for growing a variety of crops. As you can see, the avocados grow huge! And they're delicious. African avocados are the biggest and richest you'll eat anywhere! And they much less expensive than in our supermarkets. The stallholder was asking two kwacha each; about a dime (10 US cents).
