The forest produces and various agriculture products produced by tribal communities lack access to productive market. These products are sold in the local shanties where the tribals are subject to severe exploitation. Difficulty in accessing markets outside their villages is a difficulty facing the tribal communities. In order to facilitate market access to tribal products, BREDS has opened Rural Marts. The Rural Marts is a retail sales centre where the tribal products are sold with the concept of local production and local markets integration. The product category include: NPM rice, amla, tamarind, cheevaka, ragi, red chilli, turmeric powder, pickle, cashew nuts, handi crafts, broom sticks etc. The Rural Marts had received good response from the public where they could get fresh and quality products at reasonable price.
