New weekend market site is more accessible

Market goers will be glad to know that the AANI Weekend Market at the Food Terminal in Taguig City has relocated to a more customer-friendly place. It is located right after the entrance of the FTI and there is also free guarded parking.

Of course, more important is the availability of a wide variety of fresh agricultural and marine products. The wide array of vegetables include the pinakbet type as well as the chopsuey varieties from the highlands.

The AANI Weekend Market is operating in close cooperation with the Ayala group that has acquired a major portion of the food terminal.

The market is customer-friendly because the stalls are well laid-out with concrete pathways. Aside from vegetables, there are fresh fruits of the locally produced and imported kinds. There are organically grown products, including culinary and medicinal herbs.

A food court is located in one section where market goers and members of their families can partake of breakfast and snacks of favorite local specialties. The market is open on Saturdays and Sundays.

URBAN AGRICULTURE TRADE SHOW – The 2nd Urban Agriculture trade show will be held on September 5-6 at the SM Mall of Asia. This is a sequel to the very successful Urban Agriculture Expo last May at the Rockwell Tent in Makati, a project of Agriculture Magazine.

The Rockwell Tent proved to be too small for the event so it has to be transferred to a bigger venue which is the SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City. The aim of the trade show is simple enough. It wants to showcase the latest practical technologies that will enable ordinary urban dwellers to do their own brand of gardening and farming such as growing plants and raising small animals for home consumption or for sale to augment the family’s income.

There will be organic and conventionally grown vegetables and fruits at the trade show which attendees can buy. There will also be lectures on timely topics.
