The prices of vegetables which remained high for last several weeks in the city have started to come down due to abundant rainfall.

On Sunday, the prices on essential vegetables including tomatoes, green chillies, cabbage, cauliflower, onion, lady fingers and cucumber in the rythu bazaars of the city registered a sharp dip when compared to earlier weeks.

If a kilogram of tomatoes at rythu bazaar were sold at Rs 28 last Sunday, the price yesterday came down to Rs 16 per kg while the green chillies came at Rs 30 per kg as against last Sunday’s Rs 40.

While these being the pricing at rythu bazaar, In super markets and local stores, tomatoes were sold anywhere between Rs 45 to Rs 60 per kg last week. Given the adequate arrival of vegetables in the city markets, the prices in these stores too are expected to drop sharply.

According to market committee authorities, kharif crops which were sown since the beginning of the first rains in the wake of Southwest Monsoon resulted in adequate arrivals in vegetable markets.

Farmers too are expectant of their profits increasing a bit with the supplies. “We had a dull business in July due to a spike in Covid-19 cases. We hope our income improves with the drop in vegetable prices,” said a farmer selling his produce at rythu bazaar.

Hyderabad mainly receives vegetables from parts of Rangareddy, Medchal, Medak, Chevella, Vikarabad and other neighbourhood parts.
