Agriculture Secretary William Dar, on January 23, reminded vendors at the Tanauan City Trading Post to sell at fair price to allow buyers and other consumers to have access to quality and safe agricultural produce. The trading post, which serves as a marketing center for various vegetables and fruits, is currently undergoing upgrading and rehabilitation under a P50-million stimulus fund of the Bayanihan Act 2.

Once fully operational, the upgraded center will benefit 219 stall owners and a total of 190 vendors. Presently, it receives 70 tons of fruits and vegetables daily, delivered to different Metro Manila markets including Balintawak, Pasig and Alabang. (Photos by Alan Jay Jacalan, DA-AFID)
