Early white cabbage already on the market
The season of early cabbage started earlier than year ago. Last year bad weather conditions delayed beginning of season.
This year prices are very similar to those from 2012. Now early cabbage is available only in small wholesale due to low supply. In the centre of Poland (mazowieckie, łódzkie and wilekopolskie voivodeships) sellers offer vegetables at the price of PLN 3.00 - 4.00 / piece. Two years ago it was PLN 3.50 - 4.50 / piece.
Imported cabbage is more expensive and cost PLN 4.00 - 4.66 / piece. At the same time of 2012 imported cabbage cost PLN 2.00 - 3.00 / piece.
What about the future of early cabbage? Who knows? In case of this vegetable the most important factors are: weather and situation on the market. Due to the weather everything may change significantly. Now there is a warm weather and the supply should increase but taking into account previous season we can expect lower supply and higher prices.
