Almond prices rose by Rs 200 per 40 kg at the wholesale dryfruits market in the national capital today on increased demand from retailers and stockists amid low stocks.

Marketmen said rising demand from retailers and stockists against restricted arrivals from producing regions mainly attributed the rise in almond and its kernel prices.
