This building will serve the constituents of Barangay Camp Eduard as display center of all locally produced agri-products. With this, it will encourage farmer-growers to produce more since the facility can accommodate large volume of farm products safely before it will be dispatched for trading. This barangay will also declare a market day for the traders/buyers to come and do business with our farmer-growers offering farm gate prices.
At this point of time, the barangay officials of Camp Eduard are still in the process of crafting the policies and guidelines in the use of the trading center and its operation and maintenance mechanisms.
