The public will be given an another opportunity to get a wide variety of fresh farm produce and ornamental plants from their favorite TDC retail outlet, the TDC Home and Building Depots at the 5th Annual Farmers Market.
On Saturday 25th March 2017, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m., the mini marketplace will be open to customers/clients who patronise the store, either on the Frigate Bay Road in Basseterre or at Pinney’s Industrial Estate in Charlestown.
The first farmers’ market was held in 2012 and 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 and equipment 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 in which the company can better meet and serve their needs.
