DA-10 and Ketkai’s collab for ‘Farm to Market’ showcase aims to provide access to fresh agri-produce at reasonable prices.
CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY -To provide access to fresh agricultural produce at reasonable prices, the Department of Agriculture – Regional Field Office 10 (DA-RFO 10) partnered with Limketkai Center as they open the ‘Farm to Market’ on July 15, 2021.
On the conceptualization of the event, Remy Lou Hojas-Along, lease marketing officer, shared “In celebration of Nutrition Month this July, we decided to collaborate with DA-10 to provide fresh fruits, vegetables and other agricultural products to mallgoers straight from the farmers themselves. This is also our help to farmers for them to gain a market despite this pandemic.”
Spearheaded by the Agribusiness and Marketing Assistance Division (AMAD) of DA-10, the agency tapped exhibitors such as the Miarayon Highland Farmers Association, Farmgrown Association of Claveria, Manzano Farm and CNQ Organic Supplements.
Other exhibitors also include Mommy Sha Tablea, Jangkoy Marketing, Herbs & More by Urban Greens, Bukidnon Milk Company – CDO and RTB Variety Store.

Said trade fair will run from July 15- 31, 2021 at the Limketkai Center Rotunda. # (AMBManto)
