Otji Farmers’ Market, the monthly fresh produce market for Otjiwarongo residents is officially opened this Friday, 6 September by the Minister of Agriculture, Hon John Mutorwa. The Market, sponsored by Agribank, will be held every first Friday of the month on the CBD Lawn to sell from fresh produce to baked goods to fresh meat and dairy products.
The Otji Farmer’s Market was started by local farmers with the gracious support of the Municipality of Otjiwarongo. It is a project “by the people for the people of Otjiwarongo” representing an excellent example of the types of business ventures any community and any individual can initiate for everyone’s enjoyment and participation.
“The new Otji Farmers’ Market is such a great initiative. Offering area residents the opportunity to buy fresh, local food is not only beneficial for the farmers, but also healthy and affordable,” said Petros Kuteeue, Manager of Economic Development of the Municipality. “The Market is also one more great way to attract visitors to Otjiwarongo, which already boasts the distinction of being the Cheetah Capital of the World.”
Vendors include the Cheetah Conservation Fund offering an assortment of cheeses and sweets; the Have-a-Heart Spay and Neuter Programme; Zonika Kreft meat products and jams; Oshikoto Fresh Fruit and Vegetables; and Randveld Farm with an assortment of meats and biltong.
