The price of vegetables has increased in some areas after snowfall. Some vegetables were more susceptible to this development. Cucumbers, for example, were 2 yuan [0.29 USD] more expensive per 0.5 kg. It is estimated that weather changes will cause more prices to rise, though the prices of different vegetables will respond in various degrees.
Although snowfall is partially responsible, in the case some vegetables, there are other causes for this price increase. The supply volume of cucumbers decreased and supply shifted from open-field plantation to greenhouse plantation. The cost price of greenhouse cucumbers is higher. Furthermore, the harvest volume is still relatively small.
