Guam - The Farmers' Cooperative Association of Guam launched a Thanksgiving Harvest Friday Night Market in Dededo this afternoon. Co-op president Bill McDonald says this pilot program invites all farmers to present their locally grown produce for the community to purchase. The Farmer's Co-Op is also working with the Dededo Municipal Council and the UOG Cooperative Extension Service to make this market permanent.
"We got the sweet corn that's from Mr. [Ernie] Wusstig, we got bananas from Agana Heights, Inarajan and we should be getting some from Yigo, so we are covering the whole island of Guam," McDonald said.
The market is located in front of the old Dededo fire station and post office and will be open until 9pm.
