In collaboration with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) – Iloilo, the local government of Lambunao kicked off its three-day bazaar today, May 13, spotlighting the creativity and ingenuity of local micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs).

The event, aimed at fostering market linkages and providing exposure for local businesses, features a diverse array of products crafted by approximately 45 MSMEs from various municipalities within the third district, including Pototan, Cabatuan, Janiuay, Calinog, Maasin, Mina, Badiangan, Bingawan, and Lambunao.

Running through May 15, visitors can expect a treasure trove of offerings, from artisanal wearables to delectable processed foods, all cultivated with passion and skill.

“Our intention is to support the marketing activities of our MSMEs through market linkages and exposure within the third district municipalities,” said Daisy Joy Darroca, senior business counselor at Lambunao Negosyo Center, in an interview.

Building on the success of previous editions, organizers are optimistic about surpassing revenue expectations, with a projected income of PHP 300,000 anticipated over the three-day period.

In addition to the main bazaar, attendees can look forward to the Diskwento Caravan, offering discounted hardware and essential commodities on the last two days of the event.

Complementing the vibrant marketplace atmosphere, the Local Economic Development and Investment Promotion (LEDIP) office will host “Wow Lambunao Nights,” an immersive showcase celebrating local products and promoting tourism in the municipality.

A series of side events will also be held, including advocacy sessions and seminars conducted by the DTI and other governmental agencies.
