NEW VEGETABLE MARKET SHED IN CHAMKHAR OPENED
A new vegetable market shed was opened at Chamkhar town in Bumthang this week. The shed will house local farmers of the four gewogs who will bring their vegetables from their garden.
The vegetables at the old shed were bought from farmers from other districts which resulted in higher prices. With the new shed in place, the price of vegetables is expected to decrease.
The shed was opened following complaints from the public and local leaders in the last Dzongkhag Tshogdu about vegetables being priced heavily at the old market.
