Weekly Market Letter
Honolulu, January 26, 1918.
" Conditions of the local market have
remained practically unchanged dur
ing the week, the only noticeable dif
k, ference being in the prices of green
string bean, wax string beans, and
lima beans In pod, some of which
have almost doubled in price. Bar
ley Is about the only feed that has
changed, going up two dollars a ton.
Strictly fresh island eggs, though
they have remained the same In price,
are coming Into the market in larger
quantities than they have been for
many months past, and in all phobabil
ity there will be a drop in price in the
immediate future. Island poultry is
selling for the same prices.
Ton after ton of very fine cabbage
is being received by the Division.
This cabbage is selling rapidly at 2
cents a pound, wholesale.
Island Irish potatoes are just begin
ning to come into the local market
and Belling for $2.25 to $2.75 a hun
dred. Very good sweet potatoes of
different varieties continue to linger
around the dollar mark. There will
be a greater demand for the sweet
potato in the near future than there
ever has been before. These pota
toes are being used now by local
bakeries for making a new sweet
potato war bread. Mrs. Russell of
the Y. W. C. A. in a demonstration on
Kauai last November, showed the peo
ple of tho Garden Island how to con
serve wheat and sweet potato bread
has been used extensively ever since.
Love's Bakery is experimenting
with sweet potatoes as a part substi
tute for wheat and in a short time
will be putting a very fine grade of
bread on the market, made of about
33 1-3 percent Bweet potatoes. The
Sweet Shop on Hotel Street has been
serving a very good sweet potato
bread for some time past, which is
made on their own premises.
The Banana Campaign continues
and orders are coming in great num
bers each day. After the public is
acquainted with the various dishes
that can be prepared with the banana,
and its use as a substitute for wheat,
no table will be complete without its
appearance in some form or other.
