FOOD from rural areas has continued flooding Kampalaâ€™s major markets despite heavy rains, The New Visionâ€™s weekly survey has shown.
Commodity prices have slumped because traders have little space left for stocking the new produce.
This has forced producers to move around the city suburbs, selling food at give-away prices.
The traders had feared that the rains would hamper transportation of commodities because roads become impassable.
â€œA lot of produce is brought, but we are just chasing them away. Our stores are full. The producers are moving around small markets and suburbs selling the food at a cheaper price,â€ Robert Mugisa, a trader, said.
The traders, however, warned that if the rains continued, producers might stop supplying commodities because they would keep them for the planting season.
A kilogramme of beans was selling at sh500-sh600.
