Komunal Market is an alternative market which directly sources its products from peasant farmers. We procure the produce at a rate higher that the usual farmgate so that the farmers can earn more. Compared to the prevailing system of land and market monopoly here in the Philippines where food producers merely receive scraps for the produce they worked hard to harvest. Usually, traders and landlords buy their products at a rate so low that it sometimes leaves them in debt after accounting all the expenses they shelled out.
Moreover, Komunal Market is also an agrarian reform advocate fighting for free land distribution to our farmers. We believe that national food security can be achieved once farmlands have been reclaimed from its landlords and distributed to its actual tillers. We can then produce food, not geared for export, but for national consumption.
