Vegetables and Egg Prices Skyrocket Before Lunar New Year’s Holiday


The price of vegetables has skyrocketed lately before the nation’s biggest holiday — Lunar New Year’s Day.

Based on the prices at Busan’s Bujeon Market, the price of one radish is 3,000 won this year, which is nearly double last January’s price of 1,500 won.

Additionally, the price of eggs rose drastically due to AI and the price of cabbages has also nearly doubled.

The city office plans to designate a period from now until the 11th as a price management period and will monitor prices during this time.
