Local produce on the rise


Now we all like to save a few cents at the tills when shopping for groceries,  but how about   this? Why not grow your own.

foofWith high demands for local produce,  the Department of Agriculture has recognized this trend and helped it grow by setting up agricultural markets in various parts of the island, allowing farmers to showcase and sell their products.
“That has been a huge push , not only in terms of bringing the farmers and consumers together and letting the consumers recognize what quality of product that can be grown on the island. But it has also given the farmers a tremendous point of entry into the restaurant and hotel sector , because the chefs have found a place where they can meet the farmers, they can interact on quality, they can even influence the farmers  what to grow because its a two way street.” Said Brian Chrichlow , the Deputy Director of the Department of Agriculture.

With local vegetables and fruit in high demand, Cayman’s residents look forward to a future of healthy living and eating.
