Tak­ing look at prices

We’re com­par­ing price trends for 30 fruits and vegetables in our shops.

Central and North Burnett Times - - THE FENCE POST -

THIS lat­est Fence Post fea­ture will doc­u­ment the av­er­age costs of fruit and vegetables across the Cen­tral and North Bur­nett on a monthly ba­sis.

As the sea­sons change, the prices will fluc­tu­ate ac­cord­ing on what pro­duce is go­ing in or out of sea­son.

This seg­ment is de­signed to pro­vide you with a greater un­der­stand­ing of what is hap­pen­ing on the farms in and around the Cen­tral and North Bur­nett.

The Cen­tral and North Bur­nett Times will av­er­age the price dif­fer­ent types of pro­duce, mark­ing any cost in­creases or de­creases and in­ves­ti­gat­ing the rea­sons be­hind such changes.

Th­ese prices will be col­lected from in­de­pen­dent green gro­cers that most ac­cu­rately re­flect the con­di­tions faced by the pro­duc­ers from the re­gion.

The big­gest moves will be put un­der the spot­light, un­cov­er­ing the rea­sons be­hind such dra­matic changes.

A par­tic­u­lar pro­duce will also be fea­tured, pro­vid­ing greater de­tail on what the sea­son may hold.

Grounded Brown onion prices are low now they are in sea­son. Ex­pect such prices to last un­til Fe­bru­ary.

Price bliz­zard Snow pea prices will peak in sum­mer. Th­ese peas pre­fer cooler con­di­tions, as the name sug­gests.
