Barmawi said that the increases were the result of the impact of winter, which froze vegetables grown in some regions of the Kingdom, adding that the supply of some varieties of vegetables to the central market has decreased recently, while demand before the onset of the cold front had increased, which contributed to an increase in the prices of some of them.

Barmawi said that the ministry is following up with the Ministry of Agriculture to tackle the rise in prices, and expressed hope that prices will decrease and return to normal in the next few days.
