Products from Bataan are on display at a Christmas trade show.
The province administration has created a Christmas trade fair, which will sell and display a variety of locally manufactured goods.
Thirty micro, small, and medium businesses are taking part in the event, showcasing the province’s greatest food and non-food goods.
The Province Cooperative and Enterprise Development Office and the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist are organizing the three-day fair, which will take place on the first floor of The Bunker, which has taken over the Bataan capitol as the new seat of the provincial government.
“Buo ang aking paniniwala na sa ating pagkakaisa ay sama-sama tayong babangon nang may mas matatag at mas masiglang ekonomiya (I have full confidence that through our cooperation, we will rise together with a more stable and lively economy),” Governor Albert Garcia said in an interview on Tuesday.
“Sana’y tangkilikin natin ito at suportahan ang mga lokal na namumuhunan upang sama-sama tayong makaahon sa pandemya, especially this Christmas season,” he added.
Plants, flower pots, fruits, vegetables, “tuyo” (dried fish), “tapa” (cured pork), and “bagoong” (shrimp paste), as well as souvenir T-shirts, bags, wallets, and hats, are all available for purchase at the fair.
Salted and sweetened peanuts, cashew nuts, kimchi, cookies, “atsara” (pickles), fried garlic, tamarind, “patis” (fish sauce), peanut butter, flavored mushroom chips, turmeric powder, ginger powder, ginger candy, honey, and “balut” or incubated duck eggs are among the other items available.
Homemade “ensaymada” breads, cheesecakes, cassava cakes, and a variety of personal and household products, including sandals, slippers, rugs, potholders, and chair covers, are also available.
