"Strawberry index" in Uzhgorod (PHOTOS)

Strawberry is one of the most delicious, favourite spring fruit of our land. It appeared at the markets in late April, and the price for the first fruits was basically unaffordable - some sellers asked 120-130 UAH per kilogram.

But in May the situation has changed. Today, at the end of the month, we visited the city markets to find out the prices of strawberries.

Traditionally it is believed that the cheapest market is the so-called Drunk one, located on Borodin street. On weekend, you can find a lot of strawberries there. The prices are relatively reasonable - starting from 30 UAH per kilogram of large berries...


...and to 18 UAH per kilo of small strawberries, which are still quite good.

Closer to the center, there is the "Bilochka" market, also very popular among Uzhgorod residents and sellers.

Here the prices of strawberries are a little higher. The best strawberries will cost 30 UAH, and those of a little (just a little!) lower quality are 20-22 UAH.

And finally, the most expensive market - the "Green" one on Koryatovich square. Here, the "elite" strawberry is 40 or even 45 UAH.     

Of course, buyers can find less expensive berries. The choice is wide - in the boxes near the counters inside the building, and in buskets on the sidewalks around the market. 

However, 25 UAH was the cheapest we could find. Perhaps, in the evening, when vendors are going to go home and still have some goods, you can find even cheaper.

And finally, a mini bonus: within just a week, the price of new potatoes has also decreased significantly. Larger washed potatoes at the market today are 15 to 20 UAH, very small ones can be bought for as little as 8 UAH per kilogram, and the best option is probably medium-sized, but unwashed potatoes - at 10 UAH.

But it is not so difficult to wash potatoes at home, right?
