Statistical data set: Commodity prices

Updated: Updated with weekly datasets.

Prices for selected agricultural and horticultural produce are published on a weekly or monthly basis in the following spreadsheets. The data source depends on the item but includes prices collected by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) or obtained from other organisations or trade journals.

NOTE: The format of the banana price series has been changed to improve presentation and assist comparison of price information. This change is effective from 4th February 2019.
