Oct. 15, 2020 ...

The "Mercato ni Nanay Ces" is set to roll out again on October 17 at the Arte Luna Gallery in Paoay.

An initiative of the Office of the Vice Governor (OVG), the mini trade fair aims to help local entrepreneurs boost their sales while implementing public health standards.

Over 20 participating micro, small, and medium entrepreneurs will promote their homegrown products and services such as food and beverages, fabrics, and handicraft pieces, among others.

"We will help perk up our economy and provide different venues for our entrepreneurs. Also, we help them market their goods," Vice Governor Cecilia Araneta-Marcos said.

"We also encourage the buyers to bring their own utensils to reduce waste in the area. Our thrust is to make people aware that we are also environmentally-friendly," she added.  

Aside from the trade fair, speakers are invited to discuss environmental protection. Likewise, composting house kits will be showcased to encourage composting practices in urban areas.

OVG, together with businessman Mr. Mon Manotok, held "Mercato by the Beach" at North Beach Camp Pagudpud, followed by "Mercato by the Windmill" at Amianan CafeĢ Baruyen Bangui last July 8 and July 18, respectively.
