The Cămara Fest fair held on August 1 starting at 10am brings together national producers, primarily of berries, that exhibit their products in the Square of the Metropolitan Cathedral in central Chisinau, IPN reports.
The event’s organizer Diana Crudu said that about 45 national producers from all over the country confirmed their participation. Emphasis is placed on berries as they are transported in special conditions and their export is difficult. “We want to lend a hand so that these people during the pandemic that is a difficult period for everyone sell all their products,” stated Diana Crudu.
Given the restrictions determined by the epidemiological situation, social distancing between producers and buyers will be maintained and each participant will have masks, gloves and disinfectant on the table. There will be volunteers who will make sure that the rules are obeyed.
Doina Grati is one of the producers who will take part in the fair. “We are young farmers who, together with the family, grow plums. In the Cămara Fest, we are taking part with dried and fresh plumps. This initiative is helpful to those who grow something near the house. Also, the people are offered the possibility of buying fruit and vegetables directly from producers.” Doina said that at the fair she wants to sell her merchandise, to get acquainted with consumers and to offer a competitive price.
Producer Liza Mămăligă sells nutritive honey sticks that are a healthy food made from walnuts, seeds, cornflakes, dried fruit and honey. “We decided to take part in order to make ourselves more visible and enable the persons who want to try this product to buy it in small quantities. It is also a possibility for earning some money in this period that is rather difficult from financial viewpoint for small producers,” she stated.
The Cămara Fest fair will take place on each Saturday in August, starting at 10am.
