This Farm-To-Market Government Initiative Sells Affordable Vegetables

Check the schedule if there's one near you!



Needing help is nothing to be ashamed of! For those of us who are pinching pesos just to make ends meet every week, seesawing food prices doesn't help us manage our food budget. If you're struggling to find more affordable options when it comes to your ingredients, especially vegetables, you're in luck!

Kadiwa Markets are opening in more places in the city!

The Kadiwa ng Pasko markets were launched in 14 locations but it hasn't stopped there. Beyond the first locations, more areas within the city have opened up. You just need to know the schedule so you can plan your trips to avail of vegetables, fruits, sugar, and even rice priced at government prices.

The cities under the Kadiwa ng Pasko market schedule include those located in Metro Manila from tip to tip. From the up north in Valenzuela City to Las Pinas City in the south, you will find some cities have more than one location scheduled to host a Kadiwa ng Pasko market.


If you want to know if the Kadiwa markets are scheduled to be in your area, here are the cities and their addresses so you can shop for more affordable agricultural products this weekend:
