Market List

 

 

Broccoli

 

Broccoli is more on the costly side this week in rural retail markets. The asking price currently stands at $300 per bundle.

 

Ginger

 

The exotic spice ginger is on good offer at this time in markets across the island. The asking price per pound is $200. However, you can get a small amount wrapped in Saran wrap for $50. This price also holds true for Montego Bay's Charles Gordon Market.

 

Beef Mince

 

Beef mince should be easy to come by at this time in meat shops and delicatessen establishments. If you happen to be shopping at a butcher stall or in a meat shop the asking price per pound will be $160, while in supermarkets and delicatessen establishments you will be likely to pay $360 per pound.

 

Cooking tomatoes

 

Cooking tomatoes will still be costing you a pretty penny at this time with mid-island capitals like May Pen and Spanish Town asking for $150 per pound. Cheaper outlets downtown Kingston may ask for as little as $80 at this time.

 

Yellow yam

 

Staple yellow yam is on very good offer, being offered in rural retail markets for anything between $50 and $60 per pound. This holds true for Montego Bay's Charles Gordon Market. Downtown Kingston's cheaper outlets may ask for as little as $30 per pound.

 

Callaloo

 

Popular vegetable callaloo is fairly easy to come by at this time in rural retail markets, with an asking price of $50 per bundle. The same holds true for Montego Bay's Charles Gordon Market. Less costly outlets in downtown Kingston may ask for as little as $30 per bundle.
