In Belgium, the rapidly increasing supply of cauliflower is causing a drop in prices. Cauliflower has recently experienced a real revival with foodies in that country. The complete supply of tomatoes is more expensive. The summer weather, high consumption, and lower production formed the perfect combination. An increase in volumes is expected soon.
Full soil courgette production is in full swing again. Compared to last week, prices have fallen. As a result, very few yellow bell peppers are being auctioned. This trend is expected to continue next week. Broccoli is also less expensive, and volumes are slowly increasing.
The summer weather in Europe is stimulating the consumption of cucumbers. This means this product is highly sought after. There is a complete supply of all the different varieties in Belgium. In contrast, there is far less demand for chicory. Prices and supply fluctuate daily. The supply of aubergines is decreasing slightly, and this product is achieving good auction prices.
The weather is making for much demand for lettuce as well. Auction prices for this vegetable have doubled. Domestic lamb's lettuce supplies have fallen a little, and prices are dropping too. There is a well-organized supply of celeriac. Here also, prices are falling. There is a wide selection of full soil celery available at auction in Belgium.
