HYDERABAD:  The retail vegetable vendors at Gudimalkapur vegetable market are seeking the intervention of government to get permanent space for them.

There are about 526 vegetable vendors in Gudimalkapur vegetable market who sell vegetables directly to consumers and they carry out their activity along with wholesalers in the same compound.“We have been selling vegetables at the market for decades and as more vegetable vendors are joining the trade, we are unable to find sufficient space. Due to lack of sheds, we are unable to find cover during rains and summer due to which vegetables get spoilt some times,” said Govind Kumar, a vegetable vendor at the market.

Gudimalkapur market is popular among farmers and consumers, not just provides an avenue for farmers to sell their produce but also offers vegetables at reasonable price to consumers. Farmers bring vegetables to market and deliver it to commission agents who in turn auction the produce. Vegetable retail vendors buy vegetables in the presence of farmers by paying the highest price. While farmer gets better price for their  produce, retailers sell it to vegetable vendors who come to market.
