Mohammad Mamun, a vegetable trader at Palashi Rasoi market, told Prothom Alo, “There was good supply of vegetables and prices also fell, but after the supply reduced, wholesale prices increased, which affected retail prices.” “Since customers are holding them accountable, they feel a little uncomfortable.”

The price of tomatoes at this time of the year is usually more or less than 50 taka per kilogram. However, the price of local varieties of tomatoes increased from Tk 80 per kg to Tk 100-110 per kg last week. There was no good news on onion as prices of local onion varieties rose by Tk 10 to Tk 110-120 per kg, while imported Indian onions were being sold at Tk 130-140 per kg.

Bangladesh Kachamal Aroth Malik Committee Chairman MD Imran Master said that the prices of vegetables in Prothom Alo are higher this time compared to other times. However, there is no significant shortage in the supply of vegetables. Transportation costs increased slightly due to the blockade. Still, he said, prices weren’t going to rise that much this time of winter.
