The concept of Sunday Market is one of the initiatives taken by KSSS to allow direct-marketing by farmers. KSSS launched the Sunday Market project on April 3, 2016 at Mattakara village. The project aims to promote organic farming and help farmers gain better Income from their farming and farm-related activities. Other than fruits and vegetables, confectionery items, pickles and other cleansing materials are also put for sale. The initiative was inaugurated by Very Rev. Fr. Michael Vettickat (Vicar General, Kottayam Archdiocese) by giving a bunch of plantain to Mr. Jose Padikunnel (Men SHG Member, Mattakara).
Sunday Market was inaugurated after the early morning mass at St. George’s Church. The initiative was successful thanks to the team effort of the Village Development Committee (i.e. Parish Vicar), Village Animator and the SHG members of the village.
