Session Groceries on Thursday posted pictures showing the crops being offered by its partner farmers. Their prices range between P19 and P30 only.

These products can be delivered on Saturday, December 2.

“Salamat sa napakalaking suporta na nakukuha namin sa inyo. Malaking tulong dahil nakakabayad kaagad sa farmer at nagagamit nila kaagad ang binabayad ninyo para magamit ulit sa pagtatanim, bumili ng mga seedlings, pataba at pambayad sa mga tumutulong sa kanila sa farm,” the online grocery said.

“Malaki talaga ang impact nyo ka-veggies, nagconvert lang kayo ng purchase mula sa malalaking stores to simple farmers na gaya ni BJ Farm,” it added.
