* Vegetable prices in Dambulla fall sharply
Sat, Nov 27, 2021, 10:41 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 27, Colombo: The Dambulla Economic Center has been receiving stocks of vegetables for several days and the wholesale prices of vegetables have dropped sharply, say traders.

It is noteworthy that the price of a kilo of vegetables has come down by between Rs. 100 and Rs. 150 with the increase in the quantity of vegetables coming from the up country as well as the low country areas.

The wholesale price of a kilo of vegetables such as carrots, lees and beans at the Dambulla Economic Center had risen to between 450 and 500 rupees last week, but this morning the wholesale price of a kilo of vegetables at the Dambulla Economic Center has dropped to between 150 and 200 rupees, a trader said

Traders point out that it is surprising to have such a successful upcountry vegetable harvest at once after many farmers said they have not had a successful harvest due to the lack of fertilizer in recent days.

Traders point out that some carrots look large in size and surprisingly many vegetables are of excellent quality.

Traders also point out that with the sharp rise in vegetable prices, the number of vendors coming in to buy vegetables has been declining.
