    Default Market for French Beans

    In aproductive month I produce about 10 tonnes of high quality French beans.Lately I am finding it difficult to sell the produce as the middlemen who collect it from my farm aren't buying saying there is no market in the western country for Kenyan French Beans. Any one with an idea to on market?

    do they have many pubs or farmers markets in kenya?
    think you're on the wrong site we are mainly amateur gardeners.
    there is a market for french beans in the west but you need to find distributers. is there a chamber of commerce in you area/ country?
