West Pokot Governor Prof. John Lonyangapuo on Tuesday commissioned a farm produce market in Siyoi.
This is the first ever market in the county, that will purely deal with fresh farm produce.
Speaking during the event, Governor Lonyangapuo pointed out that the county has a great agricultural potential and the market will help move residents from subsistence to commercial oriented farming.
“This market is one of a kind, it is purely a market for fresh farm produce and ideal for adequate and reliable supply of vegetables,”said Lonyangapuo.
The County boss said the market was strategically placed and will serve both Kapenguria and Makutano towns.
He said his administration will boost farmers supply to the market by distributing free vegetable seeds.
“We will give farmers in Siyoi and Kapenguria wards vegetable seeds as an incentive to increase production,”he added.
