With the Christmas holidays around the corner, Barbadians will have an opportunity this weekend to purchase their fruits, vegetables and meats at bargain prices.
That is because the Barbados Agricultural Development and Marketing Corporation (BADMC) will host its Southern Farmers Market at Fairy Valley, Christ Church, on Saturday, December 22, and Sunday, December 23, from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Patrons are encouraged to support local farmers by purchasing fresh fruits and vegetables, local beef cuts, frozen turkey wings, fresh chicken and cassava and breadfruit flours.
Food and drinks will be on sale and there will be several health checks including blood sugar and blood pressure. A jumping tent, games including dominoes and draughts, musical entertainment and karaoke will be also part of the day-long activities.
Members of the Barbados Association of Retired Persons (BARP) may also receive discounts at the market. Admission is free.
