Haribodhani Ekadashi: At what price do yam and sweet potatoes sell for?


The demand for Yam and Sweetpotato has increased due to the tradition of eating items like yam, sweetpotato, and colocasia on the day of Haribodhani Ekadashi.

According to the daily public price list released by the Kalimati Vegetable and Fruit Market Development Committee, the price of yam is currently between a minimum of 70 rupees and a maximum of 80 rupees. Similarly, the market development committee has informed us that the distribution of sweet potatoes has been done at a minimum of 50 rupees and a maximum of 60 rupees per kilogram.

Similarly, the price of colocasia ranges from a minimum of 60 rupees to a maximum of 70 rupees. The demand for these items increases when Hindus observe fasting on the day of Ekadashi and follow the tradition of not eating rice and consuming items like yam, sweetpotato, colocasia, and other fruits.

On the day of Harishayani Ekadashi, it is a tradition to worship the Tulsi plant in every household and perform a ritual of marriage with Lord Vishnu. Haribodhini Ekadashi is considered one of the most important Ekadashis of the year and is also known as the “big Ekadashi” in colloquial language.

It is believed that by visiting the Four Narayans temple on this day, one can gain merit and achieve the desired wish.
