Prices for cereals and flour, bread and eggs, and also seasonal vegetables and fruits had markedly risen in the country by November.

In Kazakhstan, price for seasonal vegetables: tomatoes jumped 12.8% in a month, cucumbers 11%, and garlic 7.7%. However, onions, carrots and cabbage, on the contrary, became cheaper.
