In May 2013, WFP Tanzania, in collaboration with non-governmental organisation CEFA, launched a Farmers Market in Dar es Salaam. The event attracted some 20 vendors from around the country who came to sell a huge variety of products, from vegetables and spices to baked goods and fresh flowers. The market was launched to mobilize the urban community and create links between Tanzanian vendors, farmers, and suppliers, appealing to both local and expatriate groups.
