The state government has launched shops at which vegetables sourced from farmers are to be sold directly to shoppers. This means that vegetables that are costly now can be bought at reasonable prices.
The stocks at the shops ran out on day one.
One such shop has been opened at the Amudham store campus in R A Puram, beside the pharmacy here ( diagonally opposite Billroth Hospitals).
It is open from 8 to 11 am, 4 to 7 pm. The shop advises you to carry your own bags. There is no door delivery. Call 2345 3401/02.
A mobile vegetable shop that covers Mylapore is also to be launched.
