THE government-owned Garapan Public Market now offers more fruits and vegetables, its manager Leroy Pangelinan said.

He added that because of the pandemic, the public market no longer delivers supplies to its major clients except for the Commonwealth Health Center.

He said they “sometimes” deliver vegetables and fruits to some grocery stores and hotels.

At present, they have 11 local farmers who deliver produce to the market which is managed by the CNMI Farmers Cooperative Association.

The market likewise sells local tuba, fresh coconut, tamales gisu, dagu, miso, tamales mendioka, grated coconut, manha titiyas, toasted rice, atmayas, grated cassava, ahu mix, frozen pumpkin, and many more.
