Mandalay market sees brisk tomato sales

Tomatoes supplied by Ywangan and Inlay areas do a roaring trade in Thiri Marlar wholesale market, Aungmyethazan District of Mandalay, according to tomato depots.
Abundant supply of tomato from Ywangan and Inlay areas is daily flowing into the Thiri Marlar market by about 15 twelve-wheel trucks.  The prices of tomatoes from the Inlay area stood at K14,000-15,000 per 18-viss box, whereas Ywangan’s tomato fetches K12,000-13,000 per box, said U Aung Moe Naing, an owner of Aung commodity centre in Mandalay city.
“At present, tomatoes from Shan State are abundantly seen in the market. Inlay’s tomato receives a high price as it does not be rotten too fast. The prices have risen on low inventory. The market sees a bustling trade. The prices of green tomatoes are K600-700 per viss (a viss equals 1.6 kilogrammes).  Fresh produce sellers are doing well,” he elaborated.
Tomatoes enter the Mandalay market daily. The price also shows an uptick. In addition to tomatoes, other vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli, mustard, eggplant, chayote, potato and onions are also selling well.—Min Htet Aung (Mandalay Sub-printing House)/GNLM
