Wave Of Relief As Onion Price In Goa Has Reduced

Tourists and locals flock to the local markets of Goa to get their hands on beautiful produce. The good news is that onion prices have finally come down. Until last month, they were being sold at approximately Rs. 60 per kg but now the rates are at Rs.35 per kg. 

This could be because of the rise in onion production in the neighbouring states of Goa. The prices are expected to reduce even further because of the high amounts of onions available.

“The prices usually lower during winter, but it was unfortunately higher for a month or so. With the harvest of the new crop, the rates are coming down. Next week onwards, onions from Nashik will also hit the market and assuming there is a bumper produce, prices may go down further,” a vegetable supplier revealed.

“Besides the shortage of onions, the recent unseasonal showers and resultant humidity were leading to spoilage. Now the quality of onions is also very good. In a few days, we won’t even have an issue giving out the smaller sized bulbs for Rs 25 per kg,” said an onion seller.
