Fresh Produce Market Open Day

Fresh Produce Market Open Day

The Buffalo City Metro Market is pleased to afford its customers an opportunity to explore its fresh produce at the inaugural Market Open Day on Wednesday 3 May.
The open day is part of the City’s plan to expose its consumers to better and faster way of buying and getting fresh produce.
The market was established in September 1978 with the aim to give locals better produce while giving better services for local vendors. Its annual turnover was approximately R4 million between 1978 and 1979. Currently it has grown to approximately R375 million in the previous financial year and this has resulted in the market rated number four out of 18 national markets.
“We pride ourselves with the best and efficient work ethic in the province and that has been proven by our annual turnover and the staff retention,” said the General Manager of the Fresh Produce Market, Gonza Mati.
He also added that the market is the best place for local vendors to shop and sell to street walkers especially in the CBD and other areas.
The market supplies produce to Buffalo City, Port St Johns, Aliwal North and Port Elizabeth ad other surrounding areas.
According to Mati, the market also contributes to informal employment as it supplies produce to hawkers who make 30 percent of buyers. “The hawkers are provided with cold storage facilities to store their produce, cages for excess stock and they also have the advantage of negotiating better prices from market agents.”
At the beginning of May, the market will be hosting an open day at Mercator Place, Wilsonia, East London to showcase their produce and give buyers an opportunity to understand how one buys produce at the market.
Speaking about the event, Mati said that the event is intended to expose the activities of the market to agricultural communities which include co-operatives and small emerging farmers so that they recognise the market as a platform where agricultural products can be bought and sold.
This initiative is in line with the provincial Department of Agriculture Forestry and Fisheries’ Project Rebirth Initiative which was launched in 2015 and aimed to reposition fresh produce markets as a platform for buying and selling quality agricultural products.
The event will be attended by guests from the Department of Agriculture Forestry and Fisheries, the Chairperson of the Farmers Association, guests from Fort Cox College, guests from the Department of Rural Development and Agrarian Reform.
