Denverites observing Passover, which began this week and runs through April 30 this year, are shelling out more for traditional foods.

The big picture: Unleavened bread called matzo and lumpy gefilte fish are classic staples of the holiday table.

By the numbers: Gefilte fish prices are 17% higher than in 2019 in Denver, per NIQ, which tracks buying behavior.

  • Matzo prices are only slightly up, 0.3%, during the same span.

Between the lines: Unsurprisingly, annual matzo sales peak over Passover.
