Vegetable prices are down

Yes, it is true. Here is the price list (I tried to remember some of the items and their prices at the Gudimalkapur market this morning).

Prices are down, let us cheer up for time being.

Onions - 15 to 20 kg( based on the grade)
Tomoto (country - 8
Green chilly - 16
Okra - 15
Beans (chikkudu) - 7
Carrot - 10
keera - 15
Spinach - 2 bunches for 1 rupee
Coriander leaves - 1 bunch for 1 rupee
Cabbage - 10
Califlower - 1 flower for 8 rupees (when you buy 2, otherwise 10), weight around 1 KG
sapota - 4 per Rs 10 (Big ones).

We are able to get around 23 KG items for Rupees 350. That makes it 15 per KG or so. It is really good to see the prices coming down, but I think it is only short tim relief as summer coming up and power problems going to raise and less water for farming makes it the people in CITY to feel the cost.

I am talking about only vegetables, not commodities like petrol. Petrol is 67+ per litre in hyderabad.
