Mandalay Thiri Marlar market is bustling with trading activities of China’s carrot, said U Aung Moe Naing, an owner of Mandalay’s Aung Depot.
There is an inflow of three to four 12-wheel trucks loaded with China’s carrots to Mandalay market daily. A 6-viss carton of carrots fetches K27,000-35,000.
“The market sees only carrot supply from neighbouring China. The inventory of locally produced carrots is pretty low.
“Moreover, the acreage of carrot cultivation is decreasing. The price of imported carrots is rising. Tomato, cauliflower, potato, Chinese mustard, French bean, radish and broccoli are selling well in the Mandalay market,” he added.
The carrot is cultivated in Mandalay and Sagaing Regions. It is a lucrative crop and can be harvested throughout the year. There is an influx of China’s carrots to the Thiri Marlar market every day. — Maung Aye Chan/KK
