Buying spices

A woman picks out onions and garlic at the Balintawak Public Market in Quezon City on Monday. Most of the garlic sold in the country are imported with locally grown garlic taking up only six percent market share. The Department of Agriculture said it was thankful for recent social media posts drumming up market awareness and interest in garlic produced in Lubang Island, Occidental Mindoro which will hopefully translate to a bigger demand for locally grown garlic.
