Goat flesh

Goat flesh should be easy to come by this week in the meat shops and supermarkets across the island. If you are shopping for the meat in any meat shop or butcher stall, the asking price for a pound will be $280.

If, however, you are shopping in a supermarket, you will have to fork out $480 for a pound of goat meat.

Yellow yam

This is on extremely good offer this week in retail markets, as well as at Montego Bay?s Charles Gordon Market.

The asking price for a pound of the staple in most locations is $60, but some sellers are asking as much as $70 for a pound of the staple.

Dry coconuts

Dry coconuts are also readily available this week. The price per nut will range from $80 for the smallest of the lot to as much as $150 for a large one.

Pak choi

If pak choi happens to be your favourite vegetable, you can pick up supplies in a number of rural markets at a cost of only $50.

Montego Bay?s Charles Gordon Market will ask prices ranging from $50 to $60 for a bundle of pak choi weighing a pound.

Breadfruit

This is not in abundance at this time. The asking price for a medium-size product is $80, and you can be asked to pay as much as $150 for a large breadfruit.

Montego Bay?s Charles Gordon Market will quote prices ranging from $60 for the smallest to as much as $180 for the largest.

Dasheen

The once humble dasheen has risen in popularity and price over the past few weeks in most retail markets. The asking price for a pound of the staple is currently $60, and you may be asked to pay as much as $80 in some locations.
