Plan your Beijing tours? You may enquire about the present vegetable prices if you are interested in the price comparison of vegetables between Beijing and your resident country. The vegetable prices in Beijing like anywhere else fluctuate with the market demand and the weather concerned.
 
With the Chinese new year 2012 approaching, traditional retail commnity markets or grocerries are swarmed with shoppers eager to buy vegetables, fruits and daily necessities, forcing them to queue up for the highly priced vegetables.
 
Every year no matter whatever the cuases for the soaring vegetable prices, local governments would double their efforts to curb price hikes. But very often they would be in a dilemma – Low vegetable prices hurt farmers, but high vegetable prices hurt shoppers. It is not easy to find a point for the balanced prices. Each market has its winners and losers.
 
This morning I buy some vegetables at our local community vegetable market named “Lejia Vegetable Market”. The indoor market has been festively decorated with red lanterns and dragons, symbolic of the coming new year of Dragon. I have collected the following prices for the major vegetables Jan 16, 2012:
