New edition of the Farmer’s Market at FAO Headquarters

The new edition of the Farmer’s Market at FAO’s premises will take place on Wednesday, 18 December from 12.00 to 16.00 hours in the Atrium.


The farmers will offer seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables to around 3000 people - including employees, contractors, delegates and visitors - that enter the FAO headquarters every day.

Centro Agroalimentare Roma (CAR) - one of the largest distribution centres in Europe for farm fresh products and services, currently dealing with 170 local farmers in the Lazio region through its platform - selects the farmers participating in the FAO Farmers’ Market on rotational basis.

CAR is a member of the World Union of Wholesale Markets (WUWM) - a non-profit association that aims to promote the international exchange of information on wholesale and retail markets, with a view to improving their construction, organization and management.

The Farmer’s Market at FAO premises is a way to promote how healthy, diversified diets are vital to improving nutrition.

The FAO Farmers' market will continue to be organized once a week in 2020.
