It is still supply and demand...you see supply refers to a (kinda relatively linear) line that describes how much a seller would be willing to make of a product at a given price. That price happens to partially depend on production factors. Demand is how much buyers would be willing to buy at a given price. Once again, this price already includes production costs (though the buyer doesn't much care what the costs are from the way the seller does). Supply and demand isn't literally there is this much there and people want this much. It is more like there will be this much if we set this price, and people will want this much. The goal of the market is to find the point where those two points are equal for both the buyer and the seller.
Yay business 101. Or microeconomics.

Yea, that was misswording on my part. Still, it is super cheap to produce these foods (and their expiration is generally a lot longer), and harder to grow vegetables that stay fresh for a decent duration (Though it is easier with GMO's). I just wanted to point out that "people not wanting to buy them" is the key. That and some vegatables are seasonal and aren't necessarily produced year round (I know salads are an exception, that is pretty much year round). Lastly people like the fat tasted in processed food, it's cheaper and tastes better, and they get addicted. I think that with the supply and demand foundation is what keeps the price difference between them. I hope I explained that well enough, I'm pretty tired.

Cities can be difficult, especially big ones. As for the evolution of the human diet, it's always a factor, but not as major as you might think. Retraining the remnant cravings is a short term matter, easily handled by acclimating to a healthier diet over the course of a few weeks.
It will always be there, but the ability to stave off the craving for high carb, low protein foods (those being the most immediate transition to new fat stores and additional fat storing cells that never go away) is more highly linked to life history factors.
For example, my former lab manager's masters thesis on life history theory and human behavior revealed a strong link between low income housing situations, violent neighborhoods, and increased impulsive behavior. Basically, poor people have so many stressful factors in their living situation that it drastically impacts their ability and willingness to self regulate. And since positive, difficult lifestyle changes require large amounts of willpower, the odds are not in their favor.
