We seek to be a bridge that connects farmers with consumers in order help farmers access stable market and fair price for their agricultural products and also help consumers buy fresh food directly from the farm.
Small local farmers contribute up to 90% of food produced in Sub-Saharan Africa. But these local farmers still face many challenges since the majority live in remote communities. They have limited access to information, lack of stable market, unfair prices for their produce, poor methods of farming, lack of access to inputs like improved seeds, fertilizers and pesticides and more so facing the big obstacle of climate change.
More so, they have to walk long distances get market for their produce and also standing for long hours in markets waiting for clients to buy their produce. This results into food loses for perishable products like vegetables, fruits. Also due to lack of postharvest facilities and good storage conditions, one third of food produced is lost. 42% of vegetables and fruits is wasted in garden due to lack of postharvest management, this food that is wasted, affects farmers’ income, food security in Sub-Saharan Africa.
This why Afri-Farmers Market come to solve these challenges so that farmers can access stable market, consumers get fresh food directly from the farm, reduce food waste and increase economic income of local farmers.
