Despite the ongoing difficulties, there is no excuse for us now to not support the farmers and small businesses from all over the country. Trade fairs today can be seen left and right, and the word easily spreads out through social media.

In fact, last Dec. 1,  Bagsakan Fair was launched at Ayala Malls in Quezon City.  Born out of the desire to help farmers reach their customers easily, the fair features over 30 local MSMEs (micro, small, and medium enterprises) sprawled across 6,500-square meter of space.

The fair is made possible by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) through the Bureau of Domestic Trade Promotion, in coordination with DTI regional and provincial offices.

Participating MSMEs include 17 vendors from the National Capital Region, seven from Bataan, six from Quezon, and one from Bulacan. And it will eventually increase in number within the allotted retail space—on the second and third floors of the mall—until February 2021. 

Items you can cop include shoes, taro chips, personalized face masks, tote bags, and araro cookies, among others. Check out the items in the gallery below.
