A recent report by a research firm TNS RMS East Africa, puts Meru region on top with the largest formal market for vegetables in Kenya.

The report notes that high cash flow in the region gives the residents big spending muscles.

Tomatoes is the most consumed vegetable and has a market value of Sh39 billion, and is followed by potatoes whose market value stands at Sh28 billion while cabbages come third at Sh14 billion annually.

This means more business opportunities for those willing to set up grocery outlets; which control 97 percent of the fruits and vegetable market.
