Shanghai’s favorite entrepreneur, the Avocado Lady is a pioneering grocer who first garnered loyal customers by selling heavily discounted avocados in her then-humble fruit stall. Today, her shop is twice as big and overflows with a vast array of foreign groceries – from truffle oil to Greek yogurt - priced for just a fraction above wholesale. Literally hundreds of Shanghai residents visit her tiny shop each day. Word from the wise: unless you enjoy getting pushed up against a wall of loose lettuce, avoid going on weekends.
