The Selangor Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority (Fama) will set up six more farmers markets (pasar tani) in the state in addition to the existing 43 markets operating since August 16.
Its director Abdul Rashid Bahri said the agency was currently in the process of gathering entrepreneurs to trade in the markets.
He said three new farmers markets will be located in Petaling district, two in Sepang and one more in Kuala Langat.
On the extension of the recovery movement control order (RMCO) until December 31, Abdul Rashid said Fama Selangor would intensify efforts to market agriculture products through its farmers market.
“Based on the improving economic situation and the increasing number of visitors to Fama’s markets, I believe the farmers will have no problem selling their produce,” he said. — BERNAMA
