Prices of vegetables, fruits and seafood rise in markets due to pandemic

Restrictions to public markets have been reinforced; However, the people of the capital have been affected because prices of basic necessities such as vegetables, fruits and seafood have risen in price due to the health crisis.

“A few days ago tomatoes reached 45 pesos per kilo; it is because in the Central de Abasto there is a shortage due to restrictions and we cannot get it cheaper”, said Alberto, one of the merchants in the market.

In fruit stalls, the kilo of oranges and strawberries was 60 and 80 pesos, respectively, when their average value was around 30 pesos, so buyers prefer to buy less. “Now I buy half of everything; only half a kilo of strawberry was 40 pesos, you can no longer afford the full amount”, said neighbor María Álvarez, 50 years old.

The Head of Government, Claudia Sheinbaum, announced a total of 100,000 loans for 25,000 pesos will be granted to merchants of street markets, bazaars and gatherings. She also stated that there will be a census of the municipalities to validate all beneficiaries.
