First TienDA in Bohol set next month
Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Piñol said that all is already set for the launch of the Bohol Fish Market and TienDA which will offer sea products and crops at farm gate prices in Tagbilaran City.
Piñol said the Bohol Fish Market and TienDA is an intervention by the Department of Agriculture (DA) following complaints by Boholanos against the very high price of food items, especially fish, in the market.
The event, which will be held on August 15 and 16, will offer vegetables, fruits and other agriculture products both available locally and from other regions.
Piñol said the fish Market will be a permanent fixture where fish and seafoods will be sold to the public. It will also feature eateries where people could order fish to be cooked.
“During the two-day events lectures and orientation workshops on Easy Access Credit, Vegetable Farming, Fish Cage Farming, Crop Insurance, Financial Management and Literacy and Backyard Hog and Chicken Raising will also be offered,” Piñol said.
