ILOILO City Government's Uswag Rolling Store Project is still ongoing to bring farm produce closer to consumers.
The mobile market is available from 8 a.m. to 12 noon during Mondays at Mandurriao Plaza, Wednesdays at Molo Plaza, and Fridays at Arevalo Gym.
Vendor and farmer participants profited a total of P113,679 from their sales from November 23 to December 30, 2020.
The vendors were from Barangay Camalig, Jaro, Iloilo City; and municipalities of Leon, San Miguel and Estancia.
The program is in partnership with the regional offices of Department of Agriculture and Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources.
"As we all know, fresh vegetables and fruits is all we need to increase our immunity -- and to combat the virus. The main purpose of this initiative is to help in limiting the movement of people and social distancing. And aside from that, sellers offer their and freshly picked fruits and vegetables at a good price," Acting City Agriculturist Iñigo Garingalao said. (PR)
