The event will run from 07:00hrs to 17:00hrs
Our Food Heroes:
1) Farmers and Food vendors including agro-processers to sell their commodity and access close by markets
2) Support organisations in the food system space- to promote their services to farming or food sector
3) Residents in Makeni, Shimabala, Lilayi, Chilanga, Jack compound, Chawama and surrounding areas to buy their fresh food and farmers produce closer to their communities
Why the Makeni Farmers Market
The purpose of this event is to provide a platform for local food growers and microprocessors to have access to a reliable and profitable market. This will also help increase farmer- consumer engagement, and relevant feedback on gaps in the food market. It also aims to provide and educate the community on nutritional, environmental and economic value of buying local sustainable farm products. The market will also localize access to fresh foods for communities in Makeni, Kafue, Shimabala, Lilayi and surrounding areas.
Lets Celebrate our Food Hero together! Be part of the World Food Day 2021.
