Welcome to the Negros Farmers Weekend Market
Located right in the City of Bacolod, the Negros Farmers Weekend Market is a 1.2- hectare planned market community that offers farmers a regular trading venue for their produce. It brings them face-to-face with the shopping consumers, thus giving farmers a larger profit potential, directly helping the local economy.
The Negros Farmers Weekend Market takes inspiration from the well-established weekend markets of Legaspi Village and Salcedo Village in Makati City. A good mix of products, services, and special events has been planned to keep the Negros Farmers Weekend Market lively.
The Negros Farmers Weekend Market is a PUBLIC EDUCATION PROJECT. Its very existence teaches a healthier way of life. The market is committed to support sustainable agriculture, to fan the growth of artisanal products, and help agro-tourism in Negros Island. Aside from learning healthy diets, consumers may also acquire knowledge on food safety preparation, solid waste management, composting, organic and natural farming, even renewable energy generation. All these give a positive impact to HEALTH, the ENVIRONMENT, and the LOCAL ECONOMY.
