I assume the first list is per month for 1 person? I reviewed prices and yes just there in 2 end weeks September and left 6 october and shopped at Sima market I understand that may be a more upscale-up priced market near shevchenko park.

falah_ramel, prices are actual and right in 2018, but in the high season (from June to September) they can be higher on 10-15%, because it's popular destination in Ukraine.
