After beating the drought, the Lithuanian carrot and onion harvest has reached the store shelves
Despite the hot and dry summer that made growing carrots and onions more difficult, fresh Lithuanian vegetables have already reached the store shelves. According to the data from Maxima's market researchers, Lithuanian onions were available in supermarkets a week earlier than last year, and carrots just a week later. Retailers have noticed that buyers are especially fond of fresh vegetables grown in Lithuania, which they buy plentifully as soon as they arrive on the shelves. According to data from the largest national trading network, the demand for Lithuanian carrots and onions has grown by one third in the past year, a press release from the Maxima retail chain states.
