Thiri Marlar wholesale market sees bustling trade of tomatoes from Ywangan, Inlay areas

Tomatoes supplied by Ywangan and Inlay areas do a roaring trade in Thiri Marlar wholesale market, Mandalay city, according to tomato depots.
Abundant supply of tomato from Ywangan and Inlay areas is daily flowing into the Thiri Marlar market with four to five twelve-wheel trucks.  The prices of tomatoes stood at K30,000-K35,000 per 18-viss-carton. The tomatoes cultivated in the lowland region will be harvested soon, 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 fetches a high price as it does not spoil too fast. The prices have risen on low inventory and strong demand. The market sees a bustling trade. Fresh produce is traded regularly,” he elaborated.
Those tomatoes enter the Mandalay market daily. The price also shows an uptick. In addition to tomatoes, other green vegetables such as cabbage, French bean, broccoli, mustard, eggplant and chayote are also selling well.—Min Htet Aung (Mandalay sub-printing house)/GNLM
