Moldova: Prices for early potatoes unusually stable

The average wholesale price for this year’s potatoes has been relatively stable on the Moldovan market for the fourth week. The price decreased by about 13% over 4 weeks – to 9 MDL/kg ($0.47/kg) on ​​average. At the same time, the levels of the average starting and current wholesale prices in 2022 are the highest in the five years.

The relative stability of the wholesale price of potatoes looks unusual if we consider the significant fluctuations in retail prices from week to week, as well as on weekdays and weekends in city markets, street vendors and boutiques – 6-15 MDL/kg ($0.31-0.78/kg). Retailers attribute the situation, firstly, to the abrupt demand for potatoes from household consumers, and secondly, to a very heterogeneous product quality.
