Κατόπιν συμφωνίας μου με τον Πρόεδρο της Βαρβακείου Κεντρικής Ιχθυαγοράς Αθηνών κ. Σίμο, ξεκινά πιλοτικά «Καλάθι του Νοικοκυριού» για όλη την Σαρακοστή στην Ιχθυαγορά. Πετύχαμε σημαντικές μειώσεις στις τιμές σε σχέση με το 2022. Στον πίνακα οι περσινές τιμές και οι φετινές! pic.twitter.com/tYRFByggEH

PS I saw in supermarkets is that prices went up from yesterday, Tuesday, to today, Wednesday. Filter coffee 500gr is nearly 10 euros now, when coffee prices worldwide are down.
