Price of most fruits and vegetables hikes up 28% at Costa Rican farmer’s markets

The rising cost of living in Costa Rica has not escaped local producers. According to the most recent report by the Consejo Nacional de la Producción (CNP) – National Production Council, the price of most fruits and vegetables had an increase of up to 28% at farmer’s fairs in the past week.

For example, a head of American lettuce had a 28% increase, dry yellow onion 19%. Bananas, white potatoes, large pineapples, plantains and carrots increased from 1.2% to 6.6%.

It seems that farmers are already beginning to perceive the effects of dry conditions in the country, which affects vegetable crops. Not all is on the increase, tomato, for example, had a 12% decrease in price, while the national avocado, peppers, and green cabbage also had downward variations of between 0.3% and 3.6%.
