|MONTH OF AUGUST||WARE POTATO PRICES IN MAJOR TOWNS IN KES. PER KG|
During the month of August, the major towns experienced relatively stable prices. This was mainly because while there was a slight decrease in supply to the market, the demand was still low since most potato market outlets such as fast foods, hotels other major eateries were still not fully operational due to covid-19 management measures. Therefore the lower supply resulted to little or no change in prices.
