NB: All prices are in bond i.e. bond notes and coins. While farmers will accept Ecocash if you negotiate you are better served if you have cash. ZIPIT is almost never accepted unless you are buying some large quantities indeed.

As promised in our introduction above are the lists of prices from Mbare Musika. The market is generally divided into two.

  • The retail market which is supposed to sell smaller quantities and is staffed by middlemen. It operates from around 7:30-17:00 hours. You can get really bulk quantities from them too. Usually, items are packaged into defined quantities which are sold at fixed prices.
  • The wholesale market which has farmers selling their wares. It’s supposed to be aimed at bulk buyers as the name suggest but you can buy any quantity really. You can even buy a single onion if you are so inclined. It operates from around 6:00-11:30 hours
  • We know groundnuts are not a fruit or vegetable but they are sold at Mbare so we just included the prices there as well.
