Week prices dipped by almost half
While carrots in Ukraine is becoming a delicacy, prices for early cabbage continue to fall, analysts project EastFruit. According to them, wholesale sales of early cabbage in the main regions of production are conducted at the price of 5-8 UAH/kg, on average, 48% lower than the previous week.
Market participants believe the price decline is a natural phenomenon, because the sale has already connected nearly all of the southern region, and also started delivery of Transcarpathia.

However, now the new cabbage harvest is still on average 28% higher than in the same period of 2019.
