In the present paper it is presented a detailed analyse of the consumption of vegetables, in Romania. The consumption is analysed in time, for different species of fruits and for different categories of households. The results show that the consumption of fruits increased in 2005 and decreased from this point foreword. It is higher than the level of consumption recommended by the World Health Organisation, but less than the average of the European Union level. Romania is not one of the larger consumers of fruits among European Union countries. Another conclusion is that differences result between the quantities purchased, which are lower, and the quantities effectively consumed, which are higher, meaning that not all the amount of fruits is ensured from the market, but by self production in family farms.
