This week, buyers and sellers have been pleased to see a direct sale of organic produce from the Delta region growers directly to consumers.
Local housewives are happy that a temporary market between Than Market, Maw Tin Market and Nyaung Pin Lay Market on Mahabandula Road and Anawrahta Road is selling delta products such as bananas, papaya, coconut, duck eggs, and various kinds of vegetables at affordable prices.
“It takes three nights and four days at a time. We sell local fruits. Customers can eat it safely because it is grown without the use of fertilizers. The fruits are picked and sold here near the port of Yangon for achieving a good price,” said Daw Pu, a seller from Kyaiklat.
“Goods and fruits are stored on large ships at Yangon port and vendors sell the foodstuffs early in the morning. We are selling fruits because they are not sprayed. Now, the whole market is full of traders from our area. There are even people who sell local snacks,” said Ko Aye Min, who sells coconuts and bananas.
Buyers are pleased due to the fresh sale of local crops and eggs. Sometimes sellers came to the market by motorboat from the Twantay canal.
“In addition to being cheap, it is freshly eaten because all are organic products. Both buyers and sellers are convenient because we can buy directly from local growers,” said Ma Aye Khaing, a resident of Lanmadaw Township.
Vendors are selling per egg for K210 or K220, a branch of bananas for K500 to K1,200, per papaya for K700 to K1,500, eight mangoes for K1000, and per coconut for K500 or K600 respectively.
Because of the direct sales of flowers and vegetables, there are job opportunities for local people U Aye Min said.
The organic market is good for both the seller and the buyer Convenient but vendors are selling goods on a roadside platform.
Since the township council may remove the market, it would be appropriate to set up a legal place to do so, one customer told to the GNLM. — TWA/GNLM
