Plenty of vegetables on the market

SUPPLIES of vegetables in the local market are sufficient at present although prices of green-leaf vegetables are higher than last year due to bad weather across much of China, the local market regulation department said yesterday.

Prices of green-leaf vegetables peaked last week but have come down a little this week.

Prices are higher than last summer because the continuous rain and high temperatures have led to root rot for many green-leaf vegetables, said Wu Xingbao, director of the market regulation division of the Shanghai Commission of Commerce.

To guarantee supply, wholesale markets are organizing vegetables from northern provinces while south China suffers from flooding.

The daily vegetable supply is 8,000 tons a day at present.
