South Pacific Economics

This morning I went to the produce markets in Neiafu, Vava'u, Kingdom of Tonga. Bought a watermelon for US$5. In the Marquesas, French Polynesia I saw watermelon for sale in the produce market for US$75. Needless to say the French Polynesians sold us no watermelon.

  1. Interesting. I bought a watermelon (seedless) for $5 at the Glenwood farmer's market yesterday! I wonder why the watermelon in the Marqueses why selling at such a high price and how the peop;e could afford it.
