There are no buyers at the markets in Niš – the prices of the products are dictated by the quantity surveyor in Leskovac

At the Kvantaška market in Niš, the offer of seasonal vegetables and fruits is large, but the sellers complain that there are not many customers and that they mostly buy in small quantities, a crate of tomatoes or a small bag of peppers. And according to Jovica Veličković from the village of Dražanovac, the price of products on the markets in the south of Serbia is dictated by the Kvantaška market in Leskovac, as the largest in that part of the country.

The sellers state that the prices are the same or lower compared to last year, so a kilogram of tomatoes costs from 40 to 60 dinars, a kilogram of peppers is 60 or 70 dinars, a cucumber is 70, a potato is 60 dinars, and onions and a kilogram of watermelon cost the same. is 25 dinars, a kilogram of melon 60, and grapes 110 dinars.

Jovica Veličković from the village of Držanovac told the Beta agency that “there are very few buyers even though prices are lower than last year”, while all production and transportation costs have increased.

According to him, the price of products on the markets in the south of Serbia is dictated by the Kvantaška market in Leskovac, as the largest in that part of the country.

“The supply is now greater than the demand, that’s why the prices are low, in Niš even lower than in Leskovac, because the sales here are much lower. We’ll see what happens when the preparation for the winter season starts, maybe it will be a little bigger, but certainly not much. “Young people no longer prepare winter food because there are fresh vegetables in stores all year round,” said Veličković.

He said that the offer of vegetables this autumn will not be as good as in previous years, because the drought has dried up wells and rivers, so farmers cannot irrigate.

The greenhouses, he added, are still somehow “holding on”, while the outdoor gardens are in a catastrophic state because the plants have dried up due to the high temperatures.
