Opening wholesale cherry prices in Moldova will not last more than a week

The first offers of wholesale cherries appeared on the Moldovan market last week, and the starting range of wholesale prices was – 40-50 MDL/kg ($2.10-2.63/kg). The price level is higher than at the start of the sales season last year – about 30 MDL/kg ($1.7/kg) average. However, according to market participants, relatively high wholesale prices for early cherries this year will not last long – 7-10 days maximum.

Cherries became available in quite large volumes and they vary in quality: there are many unripe fruits of small caliber – less than 25 mm, but there are also small-scale wholesale offers of ripe and relatively large fruits. As a result, “extreme” wholesale and retail prices vary greatly.

For example, the best cherries can be offered at 60 MDL/kg ($3.15/kg), and at 70-75 MDL/kg ($3.68-3.94/kg) in retail. 

There is still demand for the service, but it will soon be minimized by the growing choice of fruits in city markets, boutiques and kiosks.
