(SPOT.ph) Everyone’s been feeling the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting quarantine, not just in the way we choose what and where to eat, but also in what we now consider essential to everyday life. But perhaps the most affected are those whose livelihoods have been put at risk, like our local farmers. With the onset of the enhanced community quarantine in March, it became a challenge for them not just to harvest but to get their produce to consumers. Online marketplaces have made them easier to access, and now, here’s another way you can support local: SM has partnered with the Department of Agriculture and Resto PH for the Farmers’ Produce Market, and you can find it from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. at The Podium today until Friday, July 15 to 17.
