The Provincial Government of Bohol (PGBh) has given the farmers, Micro Small Medium Enterprises
(MMES), repa victims and youth an earlier Christmas gift when they can sell their products at the
Kasadya Christmas Bazaar located at the Old Tagbilaran City Airport for free from any rental starting last
Thursday.
After the ribbon cutting during the soft opening of the Kasadya Christmas Bazaar last Thursday
afternoon, Gov. Art C. Yap in his message emphasized that the opening of the Bohol Showcase Center at
the CPG Park last November 4, 2021 and the Kasadya Christmas Bazaar 2021 are in line with the plans
and programs of the provincial government geared towards agriculture.
Gov. Yap said that the program aims to give additional income of the agriculture sector, youth,
MSMEs and the victims of the Ponzi Scam by selling their owned products at the display areas direct
from their farms that would eventually create market linkages between the farmers and the buyers that
would also benefit the buying public to buy cheaper prices compared than those at the wet market.
The governor clarified that the Bohol Showcase Center is purposely designed for processed products
made in Bohol which are something unique to include the Bugnay and Rice Wines, ice cream,
handicrafts, personal accessories among others; while at the Old City Airport would be exclusively for
agricultural products in the long run.
He explained that as of now since we still have limited processed products to be displayed at the
Showcase Center, other agricultural products have been allowed but properly arranged at the designated
area.
Yap encouraged the mayors to display at the Showcase Center if they have their owned products in
their respective places that need to be showcased.
He said that the activity at the Old Tagbilaran City Airport would continue until early next year
connecting the Ubi Festival activities.
Yap said that he was elated on the outcome of the one month Ubi Festival last January this year
wherein the total sales had reached to P13M exceeded the expected target of P8M such amount would go
directly to the pockets of the farmers and fisherfolks that would largely help their livelihood.
He urged the Boholanos to continue supporting his administration so as more programs and
developments to happen in this agricultural province of Bohol. (Atoy Cosap)
