Market improves for Italian carrots

"After a few terrible years, the situation is finally improving," explains a representative from Cenerini, a wholesaler in Bologna, in regards to the Italian carrot market.

The company sells carrots from Apulia and L'Aquila throughout the year. "High quality produce is sold at 70-75 cents per kg, while category II produce reaches 40 cents. Smaller grades are actually more popular than the bigger ones. In the carrot market, prices between 50 and 70 cents are quite good, as we could not reach them in the previous years."

Prices are higher "because of the lack of produce, as the summer heat stressed the plants."

Agribologna adds that "Carrots from Fondi are beginning to become available. It is still early so they are a little small, but they are sold at around €1/kg. We also sell carrots from the Veneto, which are bigger and sweeter, and are sold at 80 cents. However, their season is almost finished."
