Vegetable Prices Plummet to 10-Year Low at Dambulla Economic Centre

April 06, Colombo (LNW):Vegetable prices at the Dambulla Economic Centre hit their lowest point in a decade on April 5th, according to traders at the market. This significant drop in prices is attributed to an increase in the volume of vegetables received daily at the centre, coupled with a decrease in the number of traders purchasing produce.

Traders noted that vegetable prices, which had soared to exorbitant levels in the past, have now reached an unprecedented low. For instance, beans were sold for Rs. 40 to 50 per kilogram, okra for Rs. 50 per kilogram, cabbage and leeks for Rs. 100 per kilogram, carrots for Rs. 200 per kilogram, and cooking melon (kekiri) and cucumber for their lowest prices at Rs. 15 per kilogram.

Farmers have expressed concern over the challenges posed by this situation, as the drastic decline in vegetable prices and the reduced number of buyers have made selling their produce increasingly difficult.
