Gizo, Solomon Islands: Produce prices take a leap

The price of the fruits and vegetables being sold at the Gizo main market has taken a leap. This came after the price of fuel has taken a jump early this month. Because of this, it had forced the rural farmers and market vendors from the neighboring islands outside of Gizo to increase their produce.

Most of the vendors depend on vehicles and outboard motor to travel to Gizo to sell their produce at the market. To recover their expenses and make a small profit, the vendors have increased their prices. As a result of the situation, Gizo residents will now have to dig deep into their pockets to shop at the market.
