The rains didn’t stop the Talakag farmers, their associates and the public from celebrating today. The Programme started an hour late due to poor weather. The grounds were wet and slippery but the rest of the morning remained dry enough to still allow us to do a shopping frenzy.
The Booths were full of fresh farm or garden picked vegetables, fruits, poultry and some handicrafts. The prices were affordable too.

I have been coming to the Farmers Day for 4 years now. It's an ideal opportunity to catch the experts and seek their advice on anything to do with agriculture and crafting. As you can see from the photos, the products are varied and there's always some new ideas to try at home. Hope to see you all
again at next year’s Farmers Day!
