According to the Department of Agriculture in the Cordillera Administrative Region (DA-CAR), highland farmers are producing more than enough vegetables, sufficient to the needs of the market.

Dr. Cameron Odsey, regional director of the DA-CAR: “The total volume being traded in all the centers is high.” He added that the region’s production trading reaches a high level of 2,000 tons of assorted highland vegetables a day.

Cordillera vegetables are mostly brought to the National Capital Region (NCR) and reach as far as Mindanao in the south and Aparri, Cagayan in the north.

During the lean months, the director said the lowest total daily trading is 1,000 tons per day at the Benguet State University (BSU) managed Benguet Agri Pinoy Trading Center (BAPTC), the La Trinidad Vegetable Trading Post managed by the municipal government, as well as other private trading centers located at Benguet capital town.
