At a time when people need the freshest fruits and vegetables on their table and in their diets to keep their health at its best, the hands behind its production — the small and local businesses, farmers in the agriculture industry — were those whose operations had been impaled by the pandemic.

Fortunately, along with the slow but sure build-up of the country’s economy after having adjusted to the new normal, all businesses are going

hand-in-hand in creating new opportunities for small and local businesses, communities and farmers to bounce back on their feet, all while making sure that the farm goes straight to everyone’s homes and keep its consumers safe and healthy.

Businesses offering organic fruits and vegetables, fresh dairy products, herbs, wines, coffee and other locally cultivated products will be available at Ayala Malls through an initiative called BuyANI Fresh Produce Market. The program supports the country’s “backliners,” our local farmers, and gives them an assured market and a steady, decent income. It is a partnership between the Ayala Malls, Department of Agriculture, Ayala Foundation and the Restaurant Owners Association of the Philippines.

The BuyANI Market will be held from 11 to 13 September at Glorietta, 18 to 20 September at the Alabang Town Center, 25 to 27 September at UP Town Center, 2 to 4 October at Ayala Malls The 30th, 9 to 11 October at TriNoma, 16 to 18 October at Market! Market! and 23 to 25 October at Bonifacio High Street.

Consumers are to follow through strict safety protocols such as physical distancing, the wearing of masks and face shields, and, with the environment in mind, purchases are plastic bag-free and consumers must bring their eco-bags.

Paymaya and Megaworld Lifestyle Malls joined forces in giving both consumers and partner merchants the chance to shop and support local businesses in the process in the safest and most convenient ways through contactless transactions made at Eastwood City’s Harvest to Goodness weekend market in July.

Each participating stall at Eastwood City’s Harvest to Goodness weekend market was equipped with the Paymaya QR code, allowing consumers to have hassle-free, contactless payment options while buying homegrown products. Consumers also had the chance to have fresh fruits, vegetables, poultry, seafood and even meals from local stores around the Eastwood Central Plaza and Eastwood Mall’s Open Park just within their reach using also the Paymaya application.

The Paymaya QR code is attained through the use of the PayMaya Negosyo app which is available on Google PlayStore for Android. Through this platform, micro-, small- and medium-sized enterprises can easily accept QR and other digital payment methods using their smartphones, online and in-stores.
