For example, in some times price of lime goes up about 4 to 5 folds , this is mainly due the reduced production of lime during the period.  As a customer you can find out current fruits and vegetable prices in the market and decide which fruits are cheapest at that time of the week. with this you can try many more fruits and vegetables only when the prices have come down.
