Larger and More Expensive Tbilisi Market Offers Greater Bargains

The FINANCIAL -- The average cost of cooking one standard Imeretian khachapuri varied in September 2014 across Georgian cities from 3.01 GEL, the minimum observed in Telavi, to 3.55 GEL, the maximum observed in Tbilisi and Kutaisi. The average price was 3.35 GEL, which is 3.2% higher compared to the previous month (August 2014), and 13.7% higher compared to September of last year.

While most expensive in the average sense, Tbilisi offers the greatest savings for those “frugal housewives” who care to look for the cheapest ingredients. A frugal housewife would pay only 3.07 GEL for one portion of khachapuri in Tbilisi, saving a solid 13.7% of the average price. Telavi and Batumi are less friendly for frugal housewives, offering savings of 11.9 % and 8.2%, respectively. In the second largest Georgia city, Kutaisi, prices unexpectedly vary even less, and consumers should not expect any great bargains. Frugal housewives could not save about 5.2% of the average, paying about 3.37GEL for one portion of khachapuri.
