The drought has much more negative consequences than just making us want to siesta everyday when the sun’s at its hottest. The lack of water has driven up vegetable prices in some Bali markets as much as an astounding 100%, reports Tribun Bali

I Ketut Rebek, a vendor in Sanglah Market said prices have increased in the last week. Rebek says some green vegetables that were previously sold for seven thousand rupiah a kilo are now up to 12 thousand rupiah a kilo. But some green vegetables have bumped up 100%, previously sold for five thousand rupiah but now for ten thousand. 

Rebek says that of course the increase in vegetable prices also impacts the lack of buyers and has even seen a 50% drop. 

Another vegetable vendor, Suparningsih, said chilies are hot too. The price has gone up from 30 thousand rupiah a kilo to 38 thousand, so Suparningsih is now selling at 41 thousand per kilo.
