YAP proposal #335: Sunday Market Festival in Agricultural Products (Juli Purnomo, Indonesia)

‘We really need marketing access of our products’, said one of farmers in Tawangmangu Sub-district, Karanganyar Regency, Central Java, Indonesia.

I am Juli Purnomo, 21, currently studying agribusiness at Sebelas Maret University (UNS), Surakarta, and active in IAAS Indonesia LC UNS. IAAS is one of the biggest international association of students in agriculture in the world.

I am really interested in small farmers, community and youth empowerment, community development, small-to-medium enterprise (SMEs) development, and agri-tourism.

The first problem of local agricultural products nowadays in rural areas, especially in Karanganyar Regency, is while there many agricultural products and commodities, they not marketed well. Producers are really confused about what should they do and what would optimize the natural resources in agriculture.

Focused on these crucial problems, I, with IAAS UNS, will facilitate the communities through a Sunday Market Festival.

Sunday Market Festival is the programme to promote and sell agricultural products on Sunday in one strategic spot. I will source these agricultural products from three sub-districts in Karanganyar Regency: Tawangmangu, Ngargoyoso, and Karangpandan, which have same strategic location with many tourism potential every weekend.

The festival will help the farmers to increase the product quality, raising the sustainability of agricultural production, creating the centre of agricultural products in Karanganyar Regency, and creating an agro-tourism market.

This festival will be run in Griya Tawang, which is one of the most strategic locations for tourism in Tawangmangu Sub-district.

Why a Sunday Market Festival?

This programme is really needed because of lack of information and technology (social media) for SMEs in rural areas.

On the other hand, the farmers need youths to help make their products sustainability. By helping the farmers with partnership programmes with IAAS UNS, it will help students in agricultural and related sciences to understand the condition of small farmers, agricultural products development, and SME problems.

Sunday Market Festival will have some important aspects:

  • It is 4E (Empowerment, Entrepreneurship, Education, and Environment).
  • Community and youth empowerment will give positive impact for developing small farmers and bringing back the youth to the agriculture sector.
  • Entrepreneurship will create young agri-preneurs and improving skill and product qualities of SMEs.
  • Education will be given to the youth and children about agriculture to preserve agriculture sustainability in the future.
  • Meanwhile the environment will be preserved through empowering integrated and sustainable farming by undersrtanding organic farming.

How it works?

The first step is building a team and partnership. Partnership here make a great coordination with farmer groups, agricultural products entrepreneurs, local government, department of agriculture, trade, and SMEs, culture and tourism, IAAS UNS, IAAS Indonesia, and related communities.

The team will be spread to three sub-districts and villages (Tawangmangu, Ngargoyoso, Karangpandan). We will collect the agricultural products data and connecting with local farmers and entrepreneurs to join Sunday Market Festival and integrate it into marketing media.

Sunday Market Festival for Agricultural Products - Juli Purnomo - Indonesia

The agricultural products database will be informed detail to the website of Sunday Market Festival, and will be posted to all social media, such as Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, and related media. This festival in the future will be new destinations for all tourists in Karanganyar Regency.

It will be liked agricultural products exhibition, promotion, place for meeting the buyers, consumers, and producers, and create the sovereignty of agricultural products in that place.

The first month is used for introducing the festival, followed by Sunday Market Festival continuously. Positioning and branding always will be improved by the team.

There are some ways will be conducted in the development steps. It is improving the quality of agricultural products, supply chain management, and agricultural products production. Then empowering the youth, communities, also entrepreneurs in all sub-district about social media, website, and technology assistance with IAAS youths, and agricultural extension.

In addition, Information systems will be used to predict the Agricultural products demand. So, the farmers can produce the suitable commodities.

How I believe it will work

The similar project already done one time with the name Market Village Festival in Griya Tawang, which is the place in Tawangmangu Sub-district through the integration of community empowerment of undergraduate students of Sebelas Maret University.

Unfortunately, the festival of agricultural products was not continued. That is why I am already creating a partnership with Griya Tawang Tourism for the festival place.

Then partnership with many partners. It is the head of farmers group in Karanganyar Regency, Mr Darmono, the founder of community empowerment in Tawangmangu Sub-district, and IAAS UNS which also has Village Concept Project in Ngargoyoso Sub-district, my community empowerment and agri-tourism research in Karangpandan Regency.

In addition, partnership with partner medias in around Karanganyar Regency, and the expert already representative of organic farming and agriculture faculties in Sebelas Maret University.

Based on that festival of Agricultural products, I will use the USD 5,000 grant with detail of:

First Phase
Broadcasting to three sub-districts May 2016 USD 250
Database of agricultural products and agriculture SMEs May 2016 USD 250
Website making, social media, advertisement May–June 2016 USD 700
Sunday markets festival equipment and tools May–June 2016 USD 300
Middle Phase
Infrastructures of Sunday Market Festival development July–October 2016 USD 500
Improving the agenda and event of Sunday Market Festival July–December 2016 USD 500
Provide the existence of Agricultural products July–December 2016 USD 500
Final and Sustainable Phase
Improving Agricultural products quality controls January–April 2017 USD 500
Improving supply chain management of Agricultural products January–April 2017 USD 500
Training to small farmers and SMEs about sustainable agriculture January–April 2017 USD 500
Educating children and the societies about importance of agriculture January–April 2017 USD 500

This programme will be successfully organized if there are participation in the communities. It can bring the positive benefit of them and make them to do a continuous improvement in farming technique, creating agricultural products, and increasing the economic welfare of the village.

We are already aware of of the food security issue in 2050. Sunday Market Festival will have a great mission to increase food sustainability and food security. Furthermore, it will increase the quality and quantity of agricultural products in rural areas, stimulate many young agri-preneurs, and decreasing the number of urbanization of the village.

  1. Do you have idea to make it onlineshop like you can promout the products in bukalapak or olx etc ? You can also use the goverment progamme that are called umkm and pnpm mandiri actually 🙂
    And also the pakage you can make it more interesting for people 🙂 and also the innovation

    1. Yes. Sure. I already plan that, in the long term of this program, after the website and social media already exist. I will make it step by step, then i will coordination to create online application about agricultural products in online. I hope it will come true

      1. How can you make them (the farmer) to believe in your ideas? is the progamme will be sustainable for the farmers until you can release them to be independent ? cause in if you leave them they would not in the sunday market like as usual in our country if the innovator leave them the society can’t become long-lasting towards your progamme

  2. Great idea! We need more initiative to improve the open market from Farmers to End Customer. Fresh and Local Product is always the best 🙂

    1. Yess. That is why the small farmers always got a low or less income due to have no marketing access. Thia festival will facilitate the farmers and SMEs, especially fresh product in sunday market festival.

    1. Yess. It is. It will involve many youths, so the agricultural youths and entrepreneurs can be facilitate and grow up

  3. What a great idea. I believe it will help the small farmers and Small Medium Enterprisis (SMEs) in that Regency. May I know why did you choose Griya Tawang for your Sunday Market Festival?

    1. Thanks Amalia Tiara.
      Yess because Griya Tawang located in strategic place that always visited by many domestic and foreign tourist. It really near with three sub-district in my blogpost above. Have you already met with the festival like this before, i mean just for agricultural products?

    1. Yess. That is the point. The middleman always made the small farmers income really low and under the averages. it always happen every time, do you any suggestion to make this program success?

    1. Thank You Umba.
      Yes, that is why there is partnership program in the step. One of the partnerships is with the government, from local government till each of department that related with this project.

  4. in the first step of the project, you explained about partnership. what is the feedback from you to your partnership ? how to brand your project to partnership? are the small farmers and the people prepare to face your project?

    1. Such a great question. The feedbacks are from griya tawang itself as the place for the festival, they can brand their place to be more popular because of will be held of the festival every weekend, for the government, it help them to make a success for each government program to build a village, and increase small farmer welfare.
      I will brand to partnership about the sustainability of this program, they will give positive impact continuously, small farmer and SMEs can growth and they can empower many people.
      Yes. I already contacted with head of farmer group to prepare this and they are really needed the place for promoting their products.

  5. Small step for something bigger! In this era we need to educate farmers that they can sell their product by theirself. I want to know about how many times this festival will be held, i mean every sunday every year or just once a year.

    1. Thanks Tia for the question. It will be held continuously. In the first month when the socialization, we will make an agreement with all stakeholders. If we can held it every Sunday , it will be better, but for the trial will be held one time every two weeks, but will followed every Sunday after we already have many stakeholder.

  6. I’m really wondering how it works, how it can be applied on actual situation, and how it can be an important benefit to people. However, is there any obstacle to go further? But over all, it’s such a great ideas to be released!!!

    1. Thank you for your comment. I believe that it will need more help for all stakeholders. That is why I will make a partnership with my team to make this program success. Of course there will be any obstacle, but as long as we can plan it before with all farmers and stakeholder. It will be better

  7. Great we need more initiative like your idea!! but if you explained you will involve media partner as your brand way, right? what is the feedback and how to brand griya tawang and can increase the visitors to come in griya tawang?

    1. Yes, it will create a great feedback for media partner because they can get benefit on how to care with small farmers and agricultural SMEs. The festival will be added with many agenda that the media partner could held the agenda there. Because of griya tawang is has strategic location in every weekend, so it will increase the visitor regularly.

  8. I think it’s important to support farmer in the society. Please share further information to conduct collaboration with farmers?

    1. yes it’s really important. Collaboration with farmers, I will start by contacting the head of farmers in Karanganyar Regency, and actually I already contact him, then with his help and our action to come to each sub-district, we will socialize the Sunday Market Festival program. They can try to collect for the database of their products and agricultural commodities

    1. Thank you for the appreciation , yes I want to help the small farmers and agricultural SMEs. In the other agriculture sector is really important for our life, and Indonesia as developing country really need to develop agriculture sector

    1. Thanks Fatikhah. What do you thing of this program? Do you want to be part of this program and help the agricultural products of small farmers?

  9. As explained above, the previous experience toward the program in one place that was not continued, thus why did it happen? And why did you choose this idea in a broader places by reflecting the uncontinued program? anyway check your grammar 😊
    Goodluck!

    1. Thank you Erlina for the questions. It because the similar program was happen just for one time, and the committees were not continued it. I think that if I can continue that program or festival will help the farmer continuously. I will choose the same place due to it is the strategic places for the tourist and destination every weekend. Yes, I am sorry for my grammar.

  10. good initiative, well actually from your idea can give lots of benefit to small scale farmers. Go with it 😀

    1. Thank you hemas for your responses. Yes, I hope this idea can really help the small scale farmers. Have you ever seen this agriculture products festival in your place?

    1. Thank you Luqman. Yes I will work hard to do it. Have you ever seen this festival before in your place?

  11. It is a great initiative indeed!
    But you said that the former festival of agricultural products was not continued, why? Is there any problem in the implementation of that program? And what kind of solution that will be applied to anticipate that problem so that your project can be sustainably held?

    1. Thank you anggarda for the great question. Yes, because of the program was not planned for continuously, just one time. I think that it really great festival if I can make it continuously. The problem is about how can the youths together can build this program into success. The sustainability is the key, we can make a partnership and an agreement so the program will run sustainability.

    1. It’s such a great idea. But i think, this program must be sustainable one. Not just once, twice or couple times. So i just wonder, what is your plan to make it sustainable? And how much do you sure with the developement of this program? Btw, good luck!

      1. Thank You Ika, yes I hope that this program will sustainable for small farmers and agricultural products. That is why I need collaboration and partnership with all stakeholder, so all elements can get positive impact for this festival. I really believe that it will develop further for all stakeholders, because they will get positive impacts.

    2. Thank you. Yes, I will open recruitment for volunteer from my association and also the common youths to join this festival, and it will increase the youth concerned to agriculture products.

    1. Yes, I will plan the agenda to empower the children through activities in elementary or junior high school in the village. I can open for volunteerism and partnership with association/organization.

    1. Thank you Chadijah, I believe that it will give benefit to many people, especially in agriculture sector.

    1. Thank you for your suggestion Mr. Mukhsin. Yes, for the long term program, I will make partnership and empowering the communities, so they can have skill and will increase the independence for the communities. They can work by their desire

  14. It is a nice innovation. That’s great. Maybe you could do more promotion mainly at faculty of agriculture UNS first. And then I Think you can interest the students to become volunteers. beside that You should use a system that easy to be applicated. Good Luck..

    1. Thank you angel for your suggestion, I will make partnership with agriculture faculty of Sebelas Maret University for improving the quality of agriculture products. Volunteerism is really important for me because of I can work alone.

  15. What a great festival for agricultural products. Are you sure that this program will be running well? Considering of the three sub-district that you will be reached?

    1. Thank You Mrs. Gadis. I believe it will be successful because of the characters of farmers in the village of Karanganyar Regency want to develop their self to promote the agricultural products

  24. What a great idea Juli.
    This initiative show that youth power may create better life of farmers.
    But, how you maintain the product freshness till it sold out? And what about the management system (especially financial management) for your community and the farmers itself ?

    Thanks 🙂

    1. Thank You Mrs. Agustin. It’s a great question. That is why, because of the characteristic of agricultural products. I with my team, will held this festival with online and offline system market, The online will sell the agro-industry products, and offline market is for the fresh products, such as organic fruits and vegetables. It will be promoted in online and social media first, then the buyers and consumers can visit the Sunday Market Festival to get it. In the other hand, the financial management will be operated by the team first to make easy for the farmers.

  25. i’m glad that somebody would create an innovative movement, and it’s my own friend ^^, true Indonesia is blessed with rich nature (fertile soils and diverse plants resource for agriculture), farmer could plant anything from the basic commodities into exotic agriculture products, but we still lack in managing the market and often farmers face hard times to sell the products due to the poor access and middleman involvement. This might not new in many countries, or perhaps several region in Indonesia nowadays, but we need to expand this positive actions….best of luck!

    1. Thank You Mrs. Ranthi Whesi Umbarani for your comments, suggestions, and supports. Yes, we have to expand the marketing access of agricultural products and small farmers. if it can be promoted in every region and regency, it can make the agricultural products sustainable in the future.

  28. Agricultural products are really important for our life in the future. That festival really important to support the sustainability of small farmers. How many villages or products that you will promote in Sunday Market Festival in every event?

    1. Thank You Mrs. Utami for your comments, and questions. I will go to three sub-district and then surveying the village that have potential product, then persuade them to join our festival continuously.

  29. Wow it’s really excellent! Instead of helping the farmers to sell their product, it also can engage youth participation through promoting Sunday Market Festival by social media or involved them in this program. I hope that young people will become attracted about agriculture and more over be aware of the farmers. Good luck for this project!

    1. Thank You Mrs. Anjelaputri for your support, comment, and suggestion. Lets build our agricultural products, small farmers, and agricultural entrepreneurship

    1. Thank You Mr. Edward Colind for your support to Indonesian youth to do more in Agriculture. Keep our spirit.

  33. Somehow you’re creating a way for the youth to get involved more in agriculture, which is great! Have you tried on picking up volunteers to participate too? And by volunteers I mean everyone, even if they don’t understand a thing about agricultural. You can still make them do something, like a mini live band somewhere around the market corner or any other ideas that might attract more people, maybe? *justathought*
    Good luck anyway!

    1. Thank You for your great question. Of course I will call many volunteer to involve the agricultural activities. and great idea, I’m also have idea to add some agenda such us mini concert, and related agenda to increase the interesting activities and call many visitors.

I like the concept how you can empower the 4 ideas of sunday market festival in agriculture products (education, environment, enterpreneurship, and empowerment). My question is ‘How you can corelate that 4 elements?’

    1. Thank You Mrs Ardissa for your comment, question, and support. I will make a good timeline for it. Empowerment and entrepreneurship will be running in the first step, the education and environment will be running in the middle and final step. Then make it sustainable.

  44. I like your idea! It’s like killing two birds with one stone, giving benefit for not only farmers (to market their products) and customers (to get very fresh products!).

    1. Thank You Mrs Sasha for your comment, support, and question. Yes it will be persuaded by understanding about the benefits of this festival to increase the farmers income

    1. Thank You Mrs Dilzahra for your comment, support, and questions. I already mentioned that I chose 3 sub-district, not three village. It is about 25 villages.

    1. Thank You Mrs Nuryani for your comment, support, and question. I will persuade by giving understanding about agricultural product potential to be improved and make the farmer welfare

  51. What a breakthrough! So impressive. I really like the idea, but I have one question in mind: how might you create this project sustainable?

    and one suggestion: since most people use their smartphone a lot on their daily life, how if you create an app that connects the farmers and people (prospective consumer)? if these two ideas combined, that would be really cool, I suppose! 🙂

    1. Thank You Mrs Hasna for your comment, support, and suggestion. I will make the strong partnership to create it sustainable. It will happen through understanding each other about the positive impact of the programs.
      Yes that’s right. I have a plan to create the application about this Sunday Market Festival in the long term. It will create benefits for small farmers and agricultural SMEs

  52. such a great idea! market festival to promotes and develops local agricultural products is an innovation that the farmers need nowadays. but, I just wondering about the sustainability of this project and the involvement of the local government ( the bureaucracy to implement this Sunday market festival on public area ), how about it?
    anyway, good luck!!

    1. Thank You Mrs Inayah for your comment, support, and question. I really believe about the sustainability of the program. In public area is really benefit to promote and advertise the program.

  53. Great Idea….
    Futhermore, most of Indonesian is agriculture district then how to adapted this proposal in minority people such as in Papua or small district ?

    1. Thank You Mr Arieve for your comment, support, and question. I will not apply in papua first, but in Karanganyar Regency, Central Java. I believe it will success because in the small districts have many problems so they will really need the markets and empowerment.
