Meanwhile, 250 trucks of vegetables arrived which was more than 180 trucks that had arrived on Friday but less than the normal average of 460 trucks. Onion supply continued to remain low at seven trucks. Not a single truck had arrived on Friday as against the normal supply of 100 trucks. Potato and garlic too remained in short supply with only 75 trucks as against the normal average of 100 trucks.
The prices continued to remain high in the retail market as there was uncertainty about the stocks on Sunday as the APMC markets stand shut.
“We have asked the traders to ensure that the arrivals are as per the normal supply from Monday,” said secretary of the APMC market, Shivaji Pahinkar.
