Vegetable prices finally about to drop in Australia

Finally, many vegetables are expected to drop back to their regular prices in Australian markets. Mulgowie Yowie Salads director Shannon Moss explains that prices have remained high for so long because farmers essentially had to start from scratch in the wake of the floods.

Moss and others like him are finally recovering from the shortage. They're now producing about 30,000 cos lettuces a week, which get sent out to Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane. Despite the good news, Toowoomba-based greengrocer Bevan Betros advised that the prices won't come down immediately.

"I don't think they'll get much cheaper just for the next week or two," he stated. "They'll get back down as the warm weather comes on, as we get into spring. We should be getting down under $2 again, hopefully in September."
