Visited the Karwan market on Sunday afternoon, it was seen that potatoes are being sold for Tk 240 to Tk 250 per palla (5 kg). As a result, the wholesale price of potatoes is falling to Tk 48 to Tk 50 per kg, which is being sold at a higher price at the retail level.

Rabiul Islam, a potato trader in Karwan Bazar, told Prothom Alo that there is a shortage of potatoes in the market. And the price was already on the rise. All in all, after Eid, wholesale prices increased by 4 to 5 rupees.

The seller of Mohiuddin store in Rampura market of the capital said. Al Amin told Prothom Alo, 'After Eid, I had to buy potatoes from the wholesale market for 5 taka more per kg. We also increased that 5 rupees in retail. Even in this full season, the price of potatoes was high.'
