Agrarians from almost all regions of Bashkortostan have taken part in the agricultural fairs in Ufa at the last weekends. The news-service of Ministry of agriculture RB reports 2588,5 tons of potato, 871,1 tons of vegetables, 150,2 tons of meat and 0,5 tons of honey have been sold out at the fairs. This is the main assortment of products but agrarians bring building materials, bakery, macaroni, milk and other products to Ufa too. The prices here are noticeably lower than in the local shops. Thus, potato was sold at 8-10 rubles for one kilogram, carrot – at 10-13 rubles, cabbage – 10-14 rubles, beet – 10-12, onion – 12-13, meat – 140-170 and honey – at 200-250 rubles for one kilogram.
