The farmer’s biggest worry, after months of hard work and toiling is finding a market where to can sell their farm produce. It can be a big disappointment if such a farmer fails to find buyers for his agro products.
While dealers sometimes exploit them, it puts a smile for such a farmer to earn an income from his hard work and a market to consume his or produce. Other hand, the burden of delivering the farm produce transits from the farmer to the dealer who much deliver such to the market.
This dealer will need a place to store his or her stock before reaching out to the final or second last consumer. And in Kampala, Nakayiza Market Kisenyi, an agro produce market, located at Kafumbe Mukasa Rd, has proved to be reliable both to the dealers and consumers.

Unlike other Haruna Enterprises buildings, Nakayiza Market Kisenyi, turned out to be a market for farm and agro produce.
“Our tenants only deal in farm produce. They sell all types of food which they buy from different parts of the country. Many of them have milling machines in Kisenyi where they process foods like maize and other flours.” Said Isaac Newton, a property manager at Haruna enterprises in an interview
At Nakayiza, you can get rice, beans, soya, maize flour, millet and sorghum, cereals and other which they buy locally. Some food items are imported into the country. These are sold locally while some is shipped for export to other parts of the world.
Newton said some of the people who come to Nakayiza to buy farm produce include international humanitarian organization like UN, WFP and others. Others are large companies like schools, hospitals among others.
