Lucknow: A day after falling by Rs 10/kg, onion prices climbed to Rs 120/kg again in the city on Wednesday. The drop was due to fresh supply from Nashik and Indore, but the demand and supply imbalance pushed the prices up again, said a vendor in Gomtinagar mandi.
“Onions from Fatehpur are not that appetising to look at though they are of good quality. Whereas, the ones from Indore are good to look at. Therefore, they are priced at a higher rate as more people want to buy them,” said Sameer of Dandaiya market. Sale of onion in the market has decreased by a fourth of what it used to be a month ago.
