#Farming Friday 37: Mizoram, India, Farmer’s Markets Built on Trust


From Mizoram, in north east India , a unique marketing technique. Along the hillsides of this beautiful state, farmers display their produce: fruits, vegetables, dried fish, fresh snails, mark the prices and then, leave. Yes, leave! Customers come by and take what they want and put down the payment. None of the farmers mentioned in the piece have ever had a loss. Great story of trust and community!
