Southwest Farmers Market

The necessity for eating fresh fruits and vegetables and their by-products has always been advocated by doctors, nutritionist, dieticians and the like.

More and more consumers are becoming increasingly concerned about what they ingest the demands for fresh produce is certainly on the incline.

Additionally, our local farmers are quite aware of the increase in cost of living therefore this timely initiative which began in 2021 will be one that will be continued

to provide a steady supply of produce while easing the squeeze on the pockets.  The benefits are tremendous for both producers and consumers and intends to work

as hands in gloves.


On Wednesday, between the hours of 6:00 a.m. to 5:00p.m. the Southwest Farmers Market was the place to get fresh fruits and vegetables.  Available at reduced

prices were mango, pawpaw, coconut, sugar cane, pumpkin, carrot, onion, cassava, sweet potato, corn, and other commodities such as jams, jellies, assorted fruit

juices, aloe drinks, bamboola, roasted corn, cakes and other sweet treats.  There was a steady flow of patrons throughout the day and the public can be assured that

this will continue to be a repeated event.
