Last day of The Veggie Drop Off at Old Manila Eco-Market
Ready your eco bags because today is the last day of the Veggie Drop Off, an initiatve to help farmers from La Trinidad find a venue to sell their produce at an affordable but reasonable price.
This weekend starting February 28 to March 1, The Veggie Drop Off facilitated the delivery of 4,000 kilos of farm-fresh vegetables from the farmers of La Trinidad, Benguet to the Old Manila Eco-Market, Rizal Park, Luneta, Manila.
Fresh produce including broccoli is sold for P70 compared to the market price of P340 while other produce such as cauliflower, leeks, and romaine lettuce are also being sold at a fraction of their grocery store prices.
“Everyone is invited to come over, and bring your eco-bags please!” invited the organizers. (ANGEL ONG)
