What is a tomato market?
A tomato market" is a place where farmers can sell their tomatoes directly to customers. This gives farmers more control over the price of their tomatoes and allows customers to buy fresh, local produce. The market also provides a space for farmers to socialize and network with other growers.
Why is this important for the town of Makutano?
The market will serve as a collection, storage, and distribution center for tomatoes and other vegetables grown by small-scale farmers in the county. It is expected to create employment for youth and women while supplying fresh produce to local schools, hospitals, and households.
The market is part of the county government's commitment to promoting food security and reducing hunger among its citizens. In addition to providing a source of income for farmers, the market will also help to ensure that residents have access to fresh, healthy food.
Who Else Was at the Opening Ceremonies for the New Market?
Governor Waiguru was not the only one present at the opening ceremonies for the new market. Also in attendance were representatives from the Ministry of Agriculture, the Kenya Horticultural Council, and other stakeholders. This market is a big deal for the horticultural sector, as it will provide much-needed infrastructure and support to small-scale farmers. The governor's speech was well received by all in attendance, and there was a big turnout for the event.
It is evident that Governor Waiguru is committed to improving the lives of the people in her county. The commissioning of the Sh18 million tomato market is just one example of this commitment. Not only will this market provide a much-needed source of income for the people in the area, but it will also create jobs and help boost the local economy. We can only hope that other governors will follow suit and invest in their counties in a similar way.
