This weekend, prices of vegetables at the agricultural produce market committee (APMC), Pune, stabilised due to the arrival of the monsoon, according to officials.
“The arrival of monsoon in Maharashtra finds reflection in the prices of vegetables at the wholesale market. Along with that, reduced demand and constant supply of vegetables is responsible for the stabilisation of prices after a long time,” said Vilas Bhujbal, president, Chhatrapati Shivaji market yard traders’ and agents’ association, Pune.
On Sunday, 150 trucks of vegetables were delivered to the agricultural produce market committee (APMC), Pune.
At least 180 bags of onions and 40 vehicles with potatoes arrived at the APMC, Pune, on Sunday. Nine vehicles with tomatoes and eight with green chillis arrived from the neighbouring districts.
