High demand for corn salad, but an insufficient supply causes an increase in prices.

Head lettuce became cheaper compared to last week. Due to the cold weather last week, less savoy cabbage was harvested, and thus prices slightly increased. Chinese, white and red cabbages were slightly cheaper. Normal supply of celeriac for this time of year, slightly decreasing prices compared to last week.
