The public will have another opportunity to get a wide variety of fresh farm produce and ornamental plants at the TDC Home and Building Depots Annual Farmers Market.
The mini marketplace will be open to customers/clients on Saturday 30th March 2019, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m., who patronise the stores, either on the Frigate Bay Road in Basseterre or at Pinney’s Industrial Estate in Charlestown.
The activity forms part of the companies’ Farmers’ Month initiative. It was specifically designed to show appreciation to the farming fraternity, while recognizing the efforts of farmers for their contribution to the sector with an emphasis on food security and import substitution.
Complementing the outdoor activity is the on-going discount sale on lawn and garden supplies, such as seeds, fertilizer, pesticides, equipment and inputs not for only bona fide farmers but to persons involved in agriculture.
Over the four (4) week period field representatives from the TDC Agro Divisions have been visiting and interacting with farmers, along with other persons involved in crop production to find ways to improve through which the company can better meet and serve their needs.
