The Consumer Protection Association said that the decrease in the prices of some types of vegetables came as a result of the quantities offered compared to the quantities required, as well as due to the mild weather and the absence of frost in agricultural areas.
A source in the association told Al-Bawsala that, “As it is known, frost destroys large quantities of vegetables.”
The association called on citizens to buy vegetables and fruits in moderate quantities and not rush to buy commodities because that would contribute to increasing the required quantities and thus increasing the price.
Today, Sunday, the quantities of vegetables, fruits, and leafy vegetables imported to the central wholesale market of the Greater Amman Municipality reached 3,208,081 tons, distributed among 1,949,270 tons of vegetables, 988,973 tons of fruits, and 269,838 tons of leafy greens.
The quantities imported into the export yard amounted to 360,991 tons of vegetables and fruits.
The Central Market Bulletin specified a list of item prices according to the lowest and highest price per kilo as follows:
Ajami black eggplant from 10 to 20 piasters
Dry onions from 35 to 55 piasters
Potatoes from 25 to 40 piasters
Tomatoes from 7 to 15 piasters
A choice from 15 to 30 piasters
Lemons from 50 to 80
Zahra from 15 to 30 piasters.
