The ongoing pandemic has made many of us more budget-conscious. Prices of some of our favorite ingredients and food have skyrocketed, becoming less affordable for our everyday meals.

If you have become smarter about what ingredients you buy at the supermarket, you’re not alone. That’s why it’s super important to be aware of the prevailing prices of basic ingredients even before you leave the house. This means you are prepared financially and can better plan your meals.

The great news is that there’s a way to do this and it’s online and available almost every day! You can access these Department of Agriculture (DA) reports online! According to the regular reports from the Price Watch section of its official website, the cheapest ingredients* among the categories of these basic commodities right now are available for you to check without leaving your home. The categories include meat, rice, fish, and fruits, and vegetables.

From the vegetable list, the most affordable vegetable among the list is the sayote at P40/kilo. This is a super cheap vegetable right now considering that other vegetables in its category are double its price. (Cabbage, carrots, and the pechay Baguio or napa cabbage are next lowest in price at P80/kilo.) The kalabasa is the next most affordable at P50/kilo for the lowland vegetable category followed closely by tomatoes and pechay Tagalog at P60/kilo.

Here is the list of vegetables, from cheapest to most expensive under P100 that are on the Price Watch list of vegetables and recipes to try using it:
