According to the monitoring by UMDIS agency for the week of August 7-13, 2023, in the Moldovan supermarket, a kilogram of white champignons by weight costs 2.73 Euros. While on the same shelf there is a kilogram package of champignons at a price of 3.5 Euro – much more expensive, but probably the producer is different.

A package of white champignons 400 grams costs 1.6 euros, 250 grams – 1.24 euros, 200 grams – 1.13 euros.


Also, on the shelf of the Moldovan supermarket there are mixtures of white and brown champignons – 400 grams – 2 euros.

For comparison, in Moldova, cucumbers cost 1 Euro, tomatoes – 1.2 Euro per kilogram. Chicken fillet in a package – 2.2 euros per half kilogram. A kilogram of champignons is between vegetables and chicken fillet.

So, for a kilo of champignons you can buy about 3 kilograms of cucumbers.[ad id=”38165″]
