I went shopping at the central market.
The prices were not much different from those in Luhansk.
There are many kiosks where ladies from the country sell their harvest goods: vegetables, sunflower oil, eggs, etc.
You can get a good bargain for honey here: 40 UAH for a one liter jar.
Novopskov District is famous for its bee-keeping. You can even see three bees on its coat-of-arms.
Almost every household has beehives.

What to buy: honey, eggs and sunflower oil - the best products from local villages

What to pay: (as of September 2009)
fresh fish - 14 UAH/kg;
onions: 4 UAH/kg, 20 UAH/bucket;
potatoes: 3.50 UAH/kg, 30 UAH/bucket;
cabbage: 3 UAH/kg;
water melons: 1 UAH/kg;
apples: 15-20 UAH/bucket;
plums: 4 UAH/one liter jar;
oranges: 14 UAH/kg;
lemons: 18 UAH/kg;
cucumbers and tomatoes: 4 UAH/kg;
