Farmers to start mobile market in Yangon region this month

The local farmers have planned to sell their fruits, vegetables and flowers themselves onboard the mobile trucks in Yangon region, according to Myanmar Fruit, Flower and Vegetable Producers and Exporters Association (MFVP). The MFVP has submitted a proposal to Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC) to implement this mobile market project called Yangon farmers’ mobile market for the consumers to be able to buy the fresh fruits, vegetables and flowers from their home during the pandemic period and for the local farmers to be able to sell their fresh crops. MFVP granted implementation of the project on 29 June. Each mobile truck will contain eight to ten shops. The local farmers need to rent the cars so that they can sell their crops at more competitive prices. The local farmers from other regions can also rent limited spaces of a warehouse to keep their cargos in, according to the MFVP. The MFVP is also arranging to sell the crops which are almost unmarketable compared to the seasonal crops to be sold on board the trucks. Similarly, the local farmers can hand over their crops to MFVP to sell in the market. The price of the crops is dependent upon the market price, the crops being easy to ripe and the demand. So far, the MFVP has also launched the e-commerce platform. The vegetables and fruits are highly demanded. People can buy the vegetables online through e-commerce mobile application which has been developed by the MFVP. The sellers can display their products through the use of the application, describing the price, quality and quantity and products’ photos. The consumers can buy the goods direct online. — Thae Cho (Translated by Hay Mar)
