Around 73% of Hungarians buy their fruit and vegetables at supermarket chains, rather than at produce stores or markets, news agency MTI reports, citing a representative survey by regional growers cooperative DélKerTÉSZ.

About 42% of Hungarians get their produce at greengrocers, 34% shop at markets, and 17% go to farmers' markets, according to the survey.

It shows 39% of Hungarians spend over HUF 5,000 a month on produce, while 40% spend HUF 3,000-4,000 and 19% just HUF 1,000-2,000.

The biggest spenders tend to be women, people around 30, and residents of Central Hungary.

A little over half of respondents said they're ready to pay more for produce grown in Hungary, while 38% aren't concerned about where their fruit and vegetables come from.

The survey of 500 people was conducted by NRC in August 2021.

    DelKerTESZ has almost 500 members. They grow mainly peppers, but also tomatoes, cucumbers and cabbage.
