Vegetable prices shoot up in Bengaluru post floods in state
| Thursday | 22nd August, 2019
The prices of vegetables, especially onions, have doubled in the past 10 days.
For retail selling, onions cost Rs 2,000 per quintal exactly two months ago.
This increases the selling price from around Rs 25 to an average of Rs 40 per kg.
Gangambike, a housewife, said, “I have started to think if my family really needs these vegetables, because the prices are so high.
If the prices go up, we don’t buy a lot, so our vegetable consumption decreases but when the prices are down, we buy a lot.
