Talakag’s 5th Farmers Day Celebration

It’s the day when Talakag farmers come together in the Plaza, learn from seminars and exchange farming technologies/ideas with their fellow farmers.  Today, the topic was about organic farming.

Anything interesting for the public?  Oh yes, that is if you’re interested in buying fresh fruits, vegetables, garden plants and herbs at very reasonable prices.  Displays in various booths are a delightful sight, especially that there is competition for the “Best Booth”.

Unusual finds include:

Here’s what I bought:
Passion Fruit on the left will be made into juice.
A Purse made from recycled material bought from the Bighoop stall.

Notably absent from this year's show are the booths by Del Monte and Dole.  I'm very disappointed to miss their fresh vegetables (especially the red cabbages, beef tomatoes and bell peppers) and their canned pineapples, pears, peaches and fruit cocktails.  Mr Tupas and his rabbits have been missed too.  Hope to see them back at the Farmers Day next year.
