Prices of tomatoes (Paint container) have increased in price but the price of yam has dropped in the Tamale Metropolis this week as against last week.

A painter container of tomatoes, which was sold last week at GH5.00 is now being sold for GH11.00 and three tubers of small size yam has reduced from GH10.00 to GH5.00.

Some of the market women explained to the GNA Business that the reduction in prices of the yam had been as a result of the harvesting period and predicted a further reduction in prices.
