Supporting local is a movement that we should apply in all aspects of our lives, and this certainly applies to buying locally-grown produce to help our farmers. After all, agriculture is the backbone of our economy.
If you want to help our farmers, The Veggie Drop-Off is a non-profit venture that aims to put up as many markets in Metro Manila that offers affordable, high-quality farm-fresh produce from our Filipino farmers. The Veggie Drop-Off is currently organizing a weekend market called the Veggie Drop-Off 2 x 2, where local produce will be sold at very affordable price points and all the proceeds will go directly to farmers.
The Veggie Drop-Off 2 x 2 is named as such because this is their second vegetable drop-off and that there will be two vegetable drop-offs for one weekend. The first drop-off is scheduled on March 6 and 7, 2020, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. (or until supplies last), at the Old Manila Eco Market, Luneta. The products that will be sold on the first drop-off are vegetables from the highlands, courtesy of a resident from Bauko, Mountain Province.
The second drop-off is scheduled from March 6 to 8, 2020, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. (or until supplies last) at Quezon City Memorial Circle. The products that will be sold are also vegetable from the highlands, courtesy of a resident from Benguet.
