Once again the monthly tiangge of the Department of Agriculture – Regional Field Office 10 (DA-RFO 10) is now open to all consumers who are interested to buy fresh agri-products from the Miarayon Highland Farmers Association, Nas Agricom, Northern Mindanao Federation of Dairy Cooperatives – Highland Fresh Dairy Products, along with Local Government Unit (LGU) exhibitors from the province of Misamis Oriental and the city of Cagayan de Oro, here at the DA-RFO 10 compound, Cagayan de Oro City.

Chedy V. Ansale, chief of the Agribusiness and Marketing Assistance Division (AMAD) explained that the daylong activity is in response to the call of DA Secretary Emmanuel F. Piñol to help farmers market their product without passing through the middlemen. She added that they can now sell their agri-products directly to the consumers at a reasonable price.  Further, Ansale said that this is done monthly and during special events celebrated by DA such as the Farmers and Fisherfolks’ Month in May and World Food Day in October. “Since January of this year, we have already conducted 7 tiangge here at DA compound,” Ansale said.

This undertaking was made possible with the full support of the DA-OIC Regional Director Carlene C. Collado, CPA and the  AMAD.#
