The Barbados Agricultural Development and Marketing Corporation (BADMC), located at Fairy Valley, Christ Church, is the main coordinator of the sale of fresh fruits and vegetables. The list and prices of available items may be viewed at the BADMC’s website or Facebook page.
Persons may place orders by calling 535-6908 or 535-6586. Customers are asked to note that while staff would be present to physically record their orders, they have the option of leaving a detailed voice message.
Orders may also be sent electronically via WhatsApp to 535-6384, firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. However, given the high volume of orders, it is recommended that persons mostly utilize the email.
Persons opting to collect their orders will be contacted once their order is ready, and will be issued with written communication.
Curbside pick-up is available Tuesday to Thursday each week, between 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., and on Saturdays, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
A tent has been set up in the BADMC’s carpark serving as the collection point, and customers are asked to strictly adhere to the time communicated to them. They may pay using cash, or debit and credit cards.
The BADMC is also facilitating a home delivery service at a nominal fee of $5, but in order to be eligible, orders must be a minimum of $20.
Customers are also asked to note that, at this time, the service is restricted to the parishes of Christ Church, St. Philip and St. George, due to limited resources.
Deliveries will be done on Tuesdays and Thursdays, between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Only debit and credit card payments will be facilitated. No cash will be accepted, so as to avoid the drivers having to handle cash.
