食環街市買餸越來越貴,原因何在?

媽媽常說我們「食米不知米貴」,我們也總不明白主婦們為什麼要為那「一個幾毫」而跨區買菜。事實上今時今日要在街市買一頓飯菜的材料貴了多少?不同地區的食材價格差異,又真的只有「一個幾毫」嗎?

比較2016年發表的街市食品價格統計及全港地區入息中位數,當中我們發現有收入與物價不衡現象,以沙田、大埔、元朗三區情況最為嚴重,物價升幅持續上漲,高於工資升幅。有街市檔主認為問題歸咎於休漁期及內地直銷菜,亦發現食環街市於十八區分佈與人口數量不均,以沙田及西貢區最嚴重。

This is beneficial for helpers from low-income countries or regions, who can work for a higher wage than they would normally get in their home country, and send money back to help their family live more comfortably.
