The opening of the new local market by Marshall Islands Service Corporation was the big event for Majuro last Thursday. It’s located in Uliga across the street from the Nitijela offices.
Community members were present for the festivities, including President Hilda Heine and BOMI President Patrick Chen who shared the cake-cutting honors while the crowd enjoyed the live music. The theme “One Island, One Product” is evident in the products that line the shelves, from local produce to handicrafts.
Items are for sale from several atolls, including Ebon’s taro flour, banana flour, and breadfruit flour.
