Vegetable prices remain stable in capital

STAFF REPORTER
Vegetable prices remain stable in capital

Vegetable prices in the capital’s kitchen markets are stable as in the previous week, but the prices of new seasonal arrivals are high as usual. Parwal/green potato is one of them.

Traders said all types of vegetables are now available in the market.

But there is not much supply of parwal as yet. Its prices are, hence, above the ordinary buyer's reach.

Parwal is being sold at Tk 140 to 150 a kg. But there is adequate supply of other vegetables.

The trader further said the demand for new seasonal vegetables was always high initially, and their prices remained high, too, because of the low supply. The prices would start falling within a week or two, he said.

Owing to adequate supply as in the last few weeks, tomatoe, eggplant, carrot, cauliflower, cabbage, red spinach, pulse spinach, green vegetables and other vegetables are being sold at last week’s prices. But the prices of gourd and beans have gone up slightly.

A visit to several retail kitchen markets in Dhaka, including Karwanbazar, revealed that vendors were selling some vegetables at last week’s prices.

In the markets, including Karwanbazar, the price of gourd a few days earlier was Tk 100. But the vegetable is now selling between Tk 40 and Tk 60. Tomatoe is available between Tk 15 and Tk 20 per kg. Beans are available at Tk 50 to Tk 60 per kg. The prices of these vegetables are the same as in the previous week.

Cauliflower is selling between Tk 20 and Tk 30 as in the previous week. Cabbage is available at the same price. Turnips are priced at Tk 20 to Tk 25 per kg as in the last week. Besides, the price of eggplant is between Tk 30 and Tk 40. Radish us being sold at Tk 15 to Tk 20.

The price of chilies is Tk 70 to Tk 80 per kg. Onion is being sold at previous week's price. In the retail market, local onion is being sold at Tk 45 to Tk 50. The imported onion, too, is selling at the same price.

The prices of eggs, chicken, beef and mutton remain unchanged. Eggs are being sold at Tk 72 to 80 per dozen. Chicken is being sold at Tk 125-130 a kg, beef Tk 500 and mutton Tk 750 a kg.
