Central Market of Bucaramanga

Colombia: Green pepper prices up 33%

According to information supplied by the Central Market of Bucaramanga, Centroabastos, at least 121 products showed no change in prices, 4 registered drops and an equal number increased in price.

According to the daily report of Centroabastos, the most expensive products are: red onion, green beans, white cabbage, beets, Riogrande tomatoes, Pastusa potato, cassava, avocados, strawberries, red apples, imported pears, mandarins, oranges (regular and Valencia), pitahaya, bagre and Creole bocachico.

The most noteworthy case was that of green peppers, whose price increased by 33% in recent days. The 13 kilo basket that was sold for 10,000 pesos now costs 15,000 pesos. This increase is due to the end of the harvest period.

There was also a notable increase in the price of beans, which went up 25%, from 30,000 pesos for 40 kilos in bulk to 40,000 pesos; this, according to the marketing department of Centroabastos, is due to "the decline in its regional supply and lower supply from San Gil and Piedecuesta, two of the largest producers."

Meanwhile, the two products with prices dropping the most are carrots and green beans, with 11% and 22% respectively.

"Green bean prices dropped as a result of the greater supply from Silos, Bábega and Guaca," says the report.

With the harvest at their peak, the products currently on offer are: Tahiti limes, lemons and Castilla blackberries.
