A Nairalander's Tour To The Farms And Major Markets In The Northern Nigeria. by Nobody: 2:28pm On Apr 20, 2015
Some months ago, February precisely, I posted a topic on the business section "A nairalander tales of her onions business" www.nairaland.com/2153616/nairalander-tales-onions-business
Now I will be sharing with everyone my tour to the farms and major markets in Zamfara, Sokoto, Kebbi, Katsina and Niger Republic.

My tour was supposed to start 13th of April (last week Monday) but due to the poor (dusty/sandy) weather condition here in the north, it was moved to 16th of April (last week Thursday).

Join me as I take you round(Pictoral Tour) the farms and major markets in the Northern Nigeria and Niger Republic. I'm willing to answer all questions.

ZAMFARA STATE

TOMATOES & PEPPER
Farming is their pride. I get my tomatoes, tatase (don't know what its called in English), Rodo (in Yoruba language), Shombo (in Yoruba language too) all from Tsafe.

Please nairalander's, help me with the English or botanical name of these vegetables. Thank you.

KEBBI STATE

ONIONS

Aleiro has the biggest onion market in Nigeria/West Africa. I buy from the farmers hoping to have my own farm soon. Due to the weight of the onions (125kg), the onions cant be bagged in the farm. I employ the services of the donkey (Mai Jaki) to carry my onions to the park where it will be packed into the sac of my choice (125kg, 100kg, 50kg, 25kg) as seen in the pictures.

Picture 1-------- My packed 50kg onions though not fully packed. Still waiting for the raffia to be placed on it.


Picture 2------- A donkey carrying my clients onions from the farm to the park. Each donkeys carries 300 t0 400 bulbs of onions which is equivalent to a bag though depending on the size of the onions anyway.

Picture 3-------- My hubby and daughter about to take a donkey ride to the farm since our car cant go in lol.

Picture 4--------- One of the donkey carrying my clients onions to the park. Lol don't mind that boy (my brother in-law) behind...

Picture 8--------- My clients onions about to be loaded into the trailer. In the pix is the trailer, hubby car and our sitting mat.

This is what a family life should be like, husband and wife working in agreement and in unison to achieve the common family goal. OP, keep it up. God will bless your family and marriage.
