Beitzah- Empty

On the food desert seder plate, there is no egg. Fresh eggs are one of the luxuries lacking in these neighborhoods. Is it harder to open a supermarket in a food desert than in a higher income neighborhood?

Absolutely not.  The grocery industry often uses this argument to explain their abandonment of food deserts. In reality, operating costs are no different, land is often less expensive to develop, and the neighborhoods can fiscally support supermarkets.
