Oklahoma Ag Leadership Program Interacts with the Vendors of the Lo Valledor Produce Market Vegetables and fruits-many familiar and others a little more exotic were seen on Monday by members of Class Nineteen of the Oklahoma Ag Leadership Program as the group begins the two weeks of travels designed to learn about the agricultural industry of Chile. The Class was given a personal guided tour around the 30 acres that make up Lo Valledor market on the edge of the capitol city of Santiago- one of the largest in the country.


Enrique Veloso Diaz, Director of Corporate Communications for the market, told Radio Olahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays after the tour that the market was established in 1968- and draws up hundreds of different products that are sold to buyers of all sizes- many of which are small retail markets, restaurants and even individuals looking for fresh quality product at prices often well below what they find at retail.


Listen to Hays and Diaz as Enrique offers some insights to how the market operates.


The intertnational travel to Chile is the Capstone experience for the Class Nineteen Members of the Oklahoma Ag Leadership Program, a two year program that was established in 1982- based on a public-private partnership of Oklahoma State Univerxity and groups and indivisuals invovlved in agriclture. Over 500 graduates of the program have made a difference in rural life and production agriclture locally and nationally,
