The fair will have 145 booths set up by more than 81 exhibitors from 15 cities and provinces, including 93 booths from HCM City and the rest from Ben Tre, Long An, Tien Giang, Vinh Long and Binh Thuan.

It will have seven areas displaying works created from fruits, orchids, bonsai, processed farm produce, handicrafts and products made in traditional villages. Co-operatives’ products and services, wooden products, and food courses will also be offered.

A seminar on the role of farmers’associations in developing clean products and linkages for consumption of products will be held on the sidelines of the fair.

Organised by the HCM City Farmers Association and Department of Agriculture and Rural Development and Department of Industry and Trade, the event offers farmers a chance to promote trade of their products.

The fair is also a platform for farmers to exchange experiences, access new information and technologies in the agricultural sector, and develop linkages between farmers and distributors.

This year is the first year that the fair is being held twice in one year, with the first fair held in June.
