This is a great market for fruits and vegetables, because the county's natural conditions only allow it to produce limited quantities of agricultural products. Also in this market there is greater awareness and concern for environmental sustainability, and how consumers can contribute to social causes, providing opportunities for products that protect the environment or that are linked to a social cause.
