As part of their ongoing support for the local farming community, the TDC Home and Building Depots in St. Kitts and Nevis will host their annual Farmers Markets on Saturday 27th March 2021.

The mini marketplace will be open to customers who patronise the stores on the Frigate Bay Road in Basseterre or at Pinney’s Industrial Estate in Charlestown to purchase a wide variety of fresh farm produce and ornamental plants, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.

The activity forms part of the companies’ Farmers’ Appreciation Month initiative and is designed to reward and show solidarity with the farming fraternity, with an emphasis on promoting the ‘eat local’ message, food security, and import substitution.

Complementing the outdoor activity will be the on-going discount sale on lawn and garden supplies, including seeds, fertilizers, pesticides, and equipment for not only bona fide farmers but for all persons involved in agriculture.

Over the four (4) week period field representatives from the TDC Agro Divisions have been visiting and interacting with farmers, along with other persons involved in crop production to find ways to better meet and serve their needs.


In celebration of the seventy-fifth anniversary of the Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations and World Food Day, the Department of Agriculture et al has recognized the TDC Home and Building Depots with a Food Heroes Award.

The accolade represents the companies’ ongoing efforts to actively support the local farming community by providing a wide range of agricultural inputs, technical assistance, training, and the annual Farmers Appreciation Month Sales Event.

According to the FAO website, “behind our food, there is always someone who produced, planted, harvested, fished or transported it. We take the opportunity to thank these #FoodHeroes who, no matter the circumstances, continue to provide food to their communities and beyond helping to grow, nourish and sustain our world.”

The presentation took place on Thursday 15th October 2020, at the Department of Agriculture’s conference room, as one of the activities to mark the celebration of World Food Day.
