The strawberry and raspberry season on the Moldovan market will last until the end of August, or even until the first days of September in 2022. This is about two weeks longer than in equally dry 2020. At the same time, heavy rainfall in the second decade of August, accompanied by strong winds in some areas, damaged plantations of late berries, especially raspberries and blackberries.
The current level of average wholesale prices for strawberries in Moldova is the same as in the same period of August 2021 – 55 MDL/kg ($2.86/kg). Raspberries are offered in bulk at an average price of 60 MDL/kg ($3.12/kg), 10 MDL/kg more than at the end of the second decade of August 2021.
