Sentrong Pamilihan "Procy"
Sentrong Pamilihan is located at Maharlika Highway Brgy. Sampaloc 2, Sariaya, Quezon. More commonly known as “Procy”, it was established in the year 2004 as a Foundation by the Former Representative of the 2nd District of Quezon and Former Secretary of the Department of Agriculture, Proceso J. Alcala. Its primary goal is to form a Centralized Marketplace wherein farmers can sell all their harvests in bulk.
Coming from humble beginnings, SPPAQFI started out as a small market with few tenants and operating only a few hours a day. It then started to develop popularity and encouraged more traders and farmers to partake it its transactions. It created livelihood and a means of income for many traders, farmers, laborers and business people within and without the locality. Today, it boasts a 24/7 operation which hosts over 1,800 farmers, 200 traders and 50 employees which accommodates over 200 Metric tons of produce every single day.
In pursuit of lending its help to a larger audience and to also improve its services to its stakeholders, SPPAQFI has now ventured into the Online Selling Platform to broaden its market reach. By providing the public with a greater level of accessibility to its resources, it’s opening doors of opportunity for sellers and consumers alike.
