Wet weather drives up green leafy vegetables prices

Recent monsoon rains have affected the supply of green leafy vegetables, causing a price spike for some types. One farmer said the price of bok choi rose by BND1.50, blaming heavy rains which have affected the supply and quality of the vegetables. “The demand is high at present, as the vegetables are in short supply at supermarkets. It used to be BND4.50 per kilo, but now it has shot up to BND6 per kilo,” he said. Meanwhile, a supermarket vendor said that there has been no supply of sawi (mustard greens) for a while.
