Pricey Veggies Compel Populace to Compromise on Quantity

vegetable newNew Delhi, Tuesday, March 24 – Vegetables are the major source of nutrition. Without good food, one can’t even think of staying fit for a long time. The importance of veggies in food could only be understood by the homemakers, who have to keep themselves and the entire family healthy for several decades. However, things go out of control from their hands as well when common kitchen staples are sold at a higher price due to several seen and unseen issues.

At the present, many of the frequently used vegetables are sold at an increased rate in both the wholesale and retail market. Of course, the cost of veggies per kilogram is still feasible in wholesale market as compared to the latter one where lady finger price varied in the range of Rs 90 to Rs 100 per kilo, cauliflower between Rs 40 and Rs 50 and brinjal offered at INR 80. The rise in rates of various other eatables like red & green bell peppers, mushrooms, squash, zucchini, cabbage, sweet corns, broccoli, carrots, turnip, asparagus, bitter gourd and celery let the populace compromise on the quantity at least for some time from now.

Prices have climbed sharply without any hint, however, the augment was likely when several crop producing states witnessed rainfall in March. The only relief what people may sought is the feasible range of potato, tomato and onion which find vast usage in most of the households on a daily basis. Leafy vegetables also remained in affordable range but demand for the same was less as these miss the real color and taste which are nicer during winter season.

If latest reports related to the vegetables’ prices in the next two weeks are to be mentioned then similar scenario as of present is probable since rain chances are strong in the coming days. Due to the increase, residents make sure they get the ideal substitutes and do not lack the desired nourishment in food being vital to fuel energy in body, preparing it to face all challenges.
