On October 13, the market for storage garlic in Jinxiang was stable with increases. Available supply in storage was sufficient. Sellers were not particularly keen to sell their products and asked for high prices. Short-term buyers had the intention of tentatively venturing into the market, and buyers with rigid demand increased their efforts in purchasing.
Products in storage that fulfill current demand are mainly low-priced mixed grades, garlic cloves for processing, and mature garlic. Trading is active, prices are slightly higher, and the traded volume is good. The current price of garlic cloves is 1.78-1.85 yuan/500g, mixed large grades are fetching 2.05-2.17 yuan/500g, and red garlic (6.0cm) are traded for 2.40-2.45 yuan/500g. The spot market of green garlic shoots is still weak. The demand for yellow garlic shoots is not large, and transactions are not active.
