KSK Farmers Market Day now in Ormoc

Ormoc City – Pop-up booths line a portion of SM City Ormoc as SM Foundation launched its Kabalikat sa Kabuhayan Farmers Market Day in western Leyte’s economic and commercial hub. The KSK farmers training program of SM Foundation helps farmers improve the quality and increase the quantity of their harvests. To date, close to 28,000 farmers have been trained in high value crops cultivation under the program.

The KSK Farmers Market Day is a collaborative effort between SM Foundation, DSWD, DTI and the local agriculture office.  Fresh harvests from farm lots cultivated by KSK farmer graduates are sold in the pop-up booths at reasonable prices. Several KSK Farmers Market Day have been launched in other parts of the country where there are SM Markets/Malls. KSK farmer-graduates from nearby areas are tapped to be suppliers. The KSK Farmers Market Day at SM City Ormoc is the latest among these.
