#Kuba Hrdel on Oct 05, 2017 :
In supermarket you easily get 10kg bag of rice for 25rm, making the final per kg price half of what u guys state here.
Also, 6rm per kilo of banana is very expensive, usually is between 4-5rm at local markets, but tourist areas obviously charge 6rm and sometimes even more.
Tomato in supermarket and local markets go around 3-3,5 per kg, potato 2,3-3,5 per kg
