Canada's Cauliflower Crisis Ends as Prices Deflate: Chartby
It may be time to buy cauliflower. Prices of fresh fruit and vegetables fell 5.4 percent in October from a year earlier, the largest decrease since 2012, Statistics Canada reported Friday. Earlier this year produce prices climbed 16 percent as the loonie fell and imports became more expensive, pushing cauliflower toward C$8 ($6) a head and sparking outrage among usually mild-mannered consumers. Food prices as a whole dropped last month for the first time since 2000, falling 0.7 percent from a year earlier, the agency said.
