Mayor Salda: Farmers giving away vegetables due to lack of buyers


La Trinidad Mayor Romeo Salda said residents can get free vegetables donated by farmers and traders at the municipal grounds.

The Benguet politiko said farmers and traders have decided to donate unsold produce because there weren’t enough buyers coming from Metro Manila.

Salda also said the municipal government initially gave some rice or gasoline for the donated vegetables.

“It is not payment and not even remuneration for the cost of the vegetables they give,” he said.

“But a little help to them who lost capital for the unsold vegetables,” Salda added.
