I have been organizing Trade Fairs for seven years now as part of my job to promote Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in our Province. For the first time, I was able to organize a small organic fair at a local mall. Majority of our participants were organic farmers. The products vary from fresh produce to manufactured organic products.
I had this moment of joy when the shoppers finally entered the mall after our early Sunday ingress. I am happy for the SMEs and happy for the welfare of the consumers. Although it is my job to promote all kinds of SMEs, I am a bit biased with organic and eco-friendly products. We must all go back to basics, avoid eating processed foods and of course to buy home grown products.
Hoping to organize these kinds of fairs in the future. If you happened to find a similar event, please do buy the products of our local farmers and our micro entrepreneurs!
