MALATYA. The weather conditions in Turkey's growing regions could hardly be better at the moment. As expected, the market is quiet shortly before the end of Ramadan.

Little activity until mid-April

The Turkish dried apricot market is rather quiet shortly after the local elections at the weekend, and as this week is the last before Eid-al-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan, this is unlikely to change in the coming days. As Eid-al-Fitr is celebrated with a holiday week, during which most businesses remain closed and employees visit their families, trading is likely to be at a standstill next week and market players currently expect it to pick up again around 15 April.

Prices vary depending on the supplier
