Vegetable prices up in MalaysiaChecks by The Star this week showed that consumers in Malaysia will have to fork out extra money for vegetables and fish, as prices of these items have increased due to the monsoon season.
Other than red chillies (just a week ago, they were RM10 [2.54 USD] per kg), vegetables such as lady’s fingers and long beans are now being sold at RM9 [2.28 USD] per kg, up from RM5 [1.27 USD] and RM7 [1.78 USD] respectively before the floods hit Johor and Pahang on New Year’s Day.
Market trader Zamana Abu Bakar said even the price of bean sprouts had gone up from RM1.50 [0.38 USD] per kg to RM3 [0.76 USD]. “A crate of tomatoes is now RM34 compared to RM22 previously,” she added.
Fellow vegetable trader Lee Bing Long said the prices were likely to remain high until the Chinese New Year period.
