Goods from at least 30 farmers and fishermen’s organizations around the country will be available, direct from the producers and at farm gate prices, here at the Taguig Lakeshore Hall in Lower Bicutan on Saturday, Oct. 13 as part of the Department of Agriculture’s (DA) roving TienDA Malasakit Store. In a social media post, Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel F. Piñol said this would be the biggest TienDA so far with products such as tuna from General Santos City, bangus from Pangasinan, fruits and vegetables from Mindanao, and tomatoes from Laguna, where farmers recently lost money as they had to dispose tons of unsold harvest. Mr. Piñol said after this partnership with the Taguig City government and earlier with Muntinlupa, the DA aims to bring the TienDA to other parts of Metro Manila.
