A small group of fruit farmers in Jamaica have been given the chance to set up their own small fruit market.
For years, the local fruit market has been a mainstay in the capital city of Travandrum.
It’s a popular spot for the local people, but many say that it’s also a place where corruption, poor management and poor conditions have created a market that is in dire need of improvement.
I’m the one who owns the market, said Guillaume, a 42-year-old farmer from the village of Chantelier.
There are many things that need to be improved, he said.
We have to keep our market clean, we have to maintain the security and our security, Guillaumes brother said.
Guillaumed’s fruit market is one of the oldest in the country.
It’s been in business for nearly two centuries, and it’s the oldest one in Jamaica.
The first fruit market opened in 1819, but it wasn’t until 20 years later that the market became known for its prices, which can top $1,000 for a typical kilo of ripe fruit.
The market has struggled financially since then.
The market’s management, along with many local farmers, have been critical of the government’s handling of the fruit sector.
In 2014, Jamaican authorities cracked down on a fruit-processing plant owned by the country’s largest producer, the Fruit and Vegetable Association of Jamaica.
Jamaica’s largest banana and mango producer, Cavendish, was fined $6.6 million for importing fruit from an illegal fruit-trafficking operation, and the government announced that it was suspending the export of fruit from the Cavendish plant.
The market in Travanirra is located in a neighborhood that is known for the area’s poverty and the lack of development.
There are no shops, but there are a number of restaurants and other businesses selling fruit and vegetables.
While there are some good people, we’ve got to change this,” said Guilaume, who said that he had been trying to build a small fruit farm for the past two years.
Guillaume said that there is a lot of corruption and poor management at the fruit and vegetable market.
He said that the fruit is often sold at high prices, but that some of the traders pay much less for the fruits.
People who have been in the fruit business for generations are very worried about the situation that we’re in, Guilaumes brother added.
When I look at the market now, I can see that things have changed.
Since I started working here, I have invested a lot, he added.
Guillaumes family is hoping to set things right.
He’s planning to open a small restaurant and is currently working with the market’s owner, who is planning to build an indoor market.
The owner said that they hope to open the first indoor market in the island within the next three years.
