What’s your resolution for 2022? Maybe it's time to explore simple and economic food recipes? Hmm, well what will we cook today? Maybe, Korean sauce fried chicken or want to balado potatoes sometimes. But before that, prepare the ingredients to cook. Well to be more efficient for materials shopping, there are a few tips, you can check the price first through JakPangan. How to do thatg? Explore together through this article!

The Closest, The Cheapest

So, in JAKI, we can first check the price of groceries in the market throughout Jakarta with JakPangan. For example, we want to shop for chicken to cook fried chicken with Korean sauce. On the JakPangan page, you can type chicken in the commodity column. After that, you will see the price of chickens along with the nearest market location from the location of your home.


Then, here we can also see the price comparison of chickens in the market throughout Jakarta ranging from the highest price to the lowest price. For example, for the price of a broiler chicken, the most expensive is in Pondok Labu Market and the cheapest is in Grogol Market. However, there are also some price options from other markets. Thus, we can choose the market that is closest to our home or offer the best prices. You also do not need to worry about whether the price is valid or not because it comes straight from the official Food Information of Jakarta PD Pasar Jaya.  

In JakPangan, there is also information about market names, contact number, and list of commodities. So, it can be simpler to see the complete list of grocery prices in the market we want to go to. For example, if we want to go to Cipete Market, you will see a list of prices, whether it’s the prices that go up (red arrow), normal/no change, and prices that go lower (green arrow). With this kind of information, we can judge when and which market offers the most bang for the buck while shopping for foodstuffs. In addition, we can also know the price of foodstuffs that are expensive in the market, so we can consider what foods we want to cook.


Monitor Prices Every Day

In addition, we can also check the price of groceries every day! For example, we want to cook balado potatoes. The way to find the price of potatoes is the same as the way we look for the price of broiler chicken. Later, there will be information on the price of potatoes based on the day and date.


Like the example above, we can see the price of potatoes on January 5, 2022 and January 6, 2022. Therefore we can compare the price of potatoes by day. Here, you can see the price of potatoes per kilogram is the most expensive in Mayestik Market and the cheapest is in Kramat Jati Parent Market. In addition, we can also see the price that on one day, some go up, some go down, and some are fixed in price. So, we can consider wanting to buy groceries on what day and the location of the market that is closest to our home. 

There you have it! Hopefully you understand why now it’s easy for you to check the price first before buying groceries at the markets in Jakarta. The existence of this price information check feature can be your food for thought (pun intended) before doing grocery shopping. It's good to be able to eat delicious food and stay economic!
