Does la pièce really mean each? How do you use it?

Hi David,

In the context of shopping you will encounter the word  pièce meaning each when it is priced per unit rather than weight .

Often seen on market stalls - 

Melon €6 pièce 

Hope this helps!

It's like "a piece" in English: 6 Euros a piece.

Does la pièce really mean each? How do you use it?
