Who Wants To Buy Some Local Products

I usually buy these products (as shown in the photo) when I have the chance to pass in this local market in our province. Actually this is located at the top of the mountain in a village called Bessang. The place is cold and have a suitable soil for vegetables like cabbage, carrots, potatoes, celery, cauliflower, among others that only grows in an elevated and colder part in our place. Some local residents put small selling area where they displayed these products and the passerby can buy there products. These are way cheaper compared those being sold in the wet market of the towns and cities. I seldom came here (around 1.5 hours ride) because its far from my place. Only during when there is occasion. So when I have the chance, I buy them. Its fresh and cheap in price. Lets support local farmers.

@ilocosboy But here in the city the thing is most local products are sold not fresh anymore because of the long transport of the goods from the provinces coming to the city(but this is not the case always though). While those imported ones since they are well packed they arrived mostly fresh looking that is why most of the city dwellers buys them more because of the way they are presented to the consumers.

I LOVE to support local whenever I can. In the United States we generally say out of every dollar spent locally about 60 cents stays local while shopping elsewhere only about 30 cents stays local. In the simplest of terms, you go out to eat at Nancy's Homerun Family Restaurant and about 60 cents will stay local, eat at a chain like Applebees and only about 30 cents stays local. It is always best to keep the money as close to home as possible.
