Benefits of buying from a local farmers market - Help farmers

Many of us may have a question that a farmer's market is cheaper than a grocery store or supermarket. 

If you ask me, The farmer's market should not be much cheaper, nor should it be!

Please do not go to the farmer's market thinking that you can get everything cheap or bargain!

Why I say so is that the biggest problem for our farmers in our country right now is the price!

This price is the reason why agriculture is falling down in India!

Indian Agriculture and Related Business Report say as of September 2019 that, more than 58 percent of India's population is dependent on agriculture for their livelihood.

It is estimated that there were approximately 9.87 million farmers in India till the end of May last year!

Agriculture accounts for about 12.2% of the country's economy!

However, as of 2016, more than 8000 farmers have committed suicide!

It is questionable whether it goes into the hands of the farmer even if you buy it at a higher price!

The reason for all this is that their products do not get the right price!

The truth is that even if there is something wrong with the government, there is something wrong with us!

People are looking for cheap or stylized items!

Farmers' Market is a place where farmers sell their produce directly!

Don't go there and negotiate. There is nothing wrong with paying a little more for good quality products as much as possible!

Do not be happy that a kilo of tomatoes or onions is available for 10 rupees! Keep in mind that a farming family will starve!

Buy as many items as possible at the farmer's market! Give them the price they ask for!

Now, coming to the topic, Yes, prices are lower here than in grocery stores. This is because the farmers' market is something that was created by the government to reduce the intermediaries between farmers and consumers.

A membership card will be issued to the farmers in this market. Each farmer's market is maintained by an agricultural officer. His main job is to set prices for every agricultural commodity every morning. First, he asks the price of those items at the wholesale store. He will then ask the price of the grocery store. Then the price is calculated 25% more than the wholesale price and less than the grocery store and writes the price outside each store.

Look at the pictures below. The pricing card is displayed.

This will benefit both the consumer and the farmer. There is no charge for farmers to shop in this market.

The middleman buys the product from the farmer at a low price and sells it at the grocery store, so he is the only beneficiary. But the farmer will benefit from the farmer's market. The vegetables are cheaper for consumers as well.

Most of them sell only vegetables.

If you plan for a tour visit the local farmer lands and get fresh vegetables from there. Just think that, when you go to a restaurant, you blindly tip them 50 to 100 rupees for their actual duty, in the supermarket, you pay for the displayed product with no bargain, when you order food with food delivery partner you pay what they ask along with tips, taxes.

Considering this, nothing wrong to pay what the price farmers ask! They definitely will not overprice you.

Please add your area uzhavar snadhai / Farmers market in the comment section.

Let's preserve agriculture !! Let's benefit !!
