UK: Broccoli and carrots price have risen 36% and 27% respectively since last year
The price of a basket of groceries is creeping up ahead of Christmas with seasonal broccoli and carrots leaping in price compared with this time last year, figures show.
A basket of 35 popular items cost £85.22 in October, up from £84.90 in the previous month, according to the mySupermarket monthly groceries tracker.
Shoppers are now paying 2% more for their groceries than a year ago, with the total basket now £1.94 more expensive than it was in October last year.
Onions saw the biggest monthly price increase, up 19% to £1.32 per kilogram while mushrooms were up 4%.
However, yearly figures show that although the price of broccoli fell 4% between September and October, it is currently 36% more expensive than a year ago, while carrots are 27% more expensive than they were in October last year.
