The Veggie Drop-Off, an event that offers fresh and super affordable vegetables, will be in Quezon City from March 7 to 8. The QC Fresh Market is a weekend market held regularly at the Quezon Memorial Circle's QC Fresh Market. Prices are as low as P30 per kilo of veggies. The Veggie Drop-Off also had a March 6 and 7 sale in Luneta.
The produce for sale comes from La Trinidad in Benguet, harvested by local farmers. The idea behind the event was to help farmers who have been struggling to sell their vegetables. Aside from Benguet, the QC Fresh Market will also be offering veggies from Cavite, Camarines Norte, Bataan, Nueva Ecija, and Quezon Province.
The sale at the Quezon Memorial Circle runs from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on March 7 and will run from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on March 8. Customers are urged to bring their own reusable bags or eco bags as single-use plastic will soon be prohibited in Quezon City.
