Market Bag: Prices remain stableSaturday, December 04, 2021
KINGSTON, Jamaica – Food prices this week are largely stable at the Coronation Market compared to last week.
The prices of onions ($100 per pound) and sweet pepper ($250 per pound) are unchanged while shoppers are paying less for items such as sorrel ($200 per pound) and ginger ($250 per pound).
It's a positive development with Christmas three weeks away and shoppers are hoping that the trend continues throughout the Yuletide season.
