The farmers from Cebu City mountain barangays and the municipality of Dalaguete will be selling various fresh fruits, vegetables, eggs and other agricultural products.

To provide assistance to fishers and fish vendors from Pasil, Cebu City sell their catch, BFAR 7 also participated in the Kadiwa at the DA-7 regional office. BFAR used its reefer van to transport some 200 kilos of assorted fishes for display at the Kadiwa.
