Vegetable market structure underused in Tsimalakha, Bhutan

A structure, intended to house a vegetable market in Tsimalakha, Chukha district, which was inaugurated to encourage farmers from Chapcha, Geling, and Bjachhog has remained underused.

The shed, that can accommodate at least 20 stalls, was inaugurated November 19, 2017. Tsimalakha residents said that although the Chukha administration had constructed the structure to help farmers, it remains underused.

According to kuenselonline, farmers find it more profitable to sell their produce on the highway, as bringing the produce up to the structure involves costs.
