Meanwhile, many old stocks were damaged so that they could not be sold.


According to him, I usually eat 2 quintals of garlic. Unfortunately, during this pandemic, buyers tend to be quiet. In addition, if they usually buy about 5 kg, now it is only 1-2 kg. The customers are mostly food stalls, while not many caterers are open."People's purchasing power has also decreased, so not many people buy here," he added.On the contrary, the price of shallots fell. Previously, the price of shallots was IDR 30,000 / kg to IDR 26,000 / kg.

Meanwhile, red onions are at IDR 27,000 / kg."If the stock is lacking, not. But, the good stuff is rare. So the price varies depending on the onions, "he said.In addition, the price of chili has also increased. For example, large red chilies from IDR 23,000 / kg to IDR 25,000 / kg - IDR 30,000 / kg, large red chilies of IDR 23,000 / kg, and curly chilies of IDR 30,000 / kg.

For large red chilies it is IDR 25,000 / kg, previously it was from IDR 20,000 / kg. Meanwhile, the rawit is IDR 23,000 / kg from IDR 17,000 / kg.So, I also didn't dare to do much.
