Weekly Market Letter
January 11, 1918.
The price of Island eggs have drop
ped two cents a dozen and they are
more plentiful now than they have
been for some time. But if feed
prices do not drop, poultry men claim
that they will have to sell their flocks,
as they can not nfford to sell eggs at
this price when feed is so high. There
is very little island poultry In the
market at present, but prices are re
maining the same.
A large shipment of yellow sweet
potatoes was received from Maui
this week. These potatoes are excep
tionally good and selling for $1.15 a
hundred. It is almost unbelievable
but tho restaurants and families in
sweet potato, but instead keep insist
ing on the imported Irish potato in
spite of the fact that everything pos
sible is being done to encourage the
consumption of local produce. A
tour of tho grocery stores of this
city in the past week, proved that
there is no demand for the local
sweet potato. It Is up to the con
sumer to ask his grocer to furnish
him with sweet potatoes when giving
his order, as most of the grocery
stores have them on hand and are
only too glad to sell island produce.
Island cabbage is more plentiful
now and that which is coming into
the market, is number one cabbage
and selling for $3.00 a hundred.
The Division continues to receive
large shipments of bananas that are
of the finest quality. These bananas
are selling very reasonable and for al
most nothing when one compares the
price asked locally with the prices
now received for bananas on tho
Mainland. O. B. LIGIITFOOT, Sup
