THE WAY FORWARD │ Level Up Philippine Agriculture!

Delivery of Vegetables in Balintawak Cloverleaf Market, Quezon City (Oct. 25, 2021)

Author: DA Communications Group | 25 October 2021

At least 180 metric tons of assorted vegetables from the typhoon Maring-affected provinces in the Cordillera Administrative Region, Cagayan Valley, and Bicol were delivered to the Balintawak Cloverleaf Market in Quezon City on October 25, 2021.

This is in line with the efforts of the government, under the Department of Agriculture (DA), to ensure the availability and affordability of fresh lowland and highland vegetables for Metro Manila consumers despite the damage brought by the typhoon to production areas in Luzon.

Among the vegetables delivered included carrots, chayote, pechay Baguio, white potato, squash, tomato, cucumber, beans, eggplant, and ampalaya from the Benguet Agri-Pinoy Trading Center (BAPTC), Nueva Vizcaya Agricultural Terminal (NVAT), and the Agripreneur Farmers Producers Association (AFPAI) of Camarines Sur.
