The price of the common vegetable has increased 51 per cent in the last year.
One kilo of carrots cost $3.53 in February 2017, compared with $2.34 a year ago.
Prices for fruit and vegetables, and dairy products have soared in the past year with vegetables up 12 per cent.
Poor growing conditions in the North Island last year had resulted in a shortage just before Christmas.
