MALATYA. After the Turkish apricot market had been remarkably quiet in recent weeks, demand is now picking up in the run-up to Ramadan. However, market experts predict buying interest to slow down again in March.

Increased purchase enquiries

After weeks of almost no activity on the Turkish apricot market, the market now appears to be slowly picking up again. Previously, there was hardly any trading activity, some of the processing factories remained closed and there was little movement in prices either, as there was no buying interest neither in the domestic market nor from overseas. Market players are now explaining that demand is starting to pick up in the run-up to Ramadan and that traders are also receiving more purchase enquiries from European countries.
