Abstract: This research evaluated the concentration and distribution of heavy metals (Chromium (Cr), Lead (Pb), & Cadmium (Cd)) in the vegetable field in the Kolfe area, Addis Ababa. Soil samples are tested for pH and heavy metals. Heavy metals in the soil are higher than the earlier report [1]. However, concentrations of heavy metal were observed (Cr > Pb >Cd), mean concentrations of heavy metal Cr, Cd and Pb were 274.83 mg kg^(-1), 3.09 mg kg^(-1), and 29.83 mg kg^(-1), respectively.
