A mega market should be established near Mettupalayam for horticulture produce, said the Nilgiris Potato and Vegetable Growers Association. Though the District Collector had given instructions to find land for the project about two years ago, no action has been taken so far, said S. Ravi, secretary of the association in a memorandum sent to the District Revenue Officer, Coimbatore. He said that funds allotted by the Government to agriculture marketing wing for creating facilities to sell farm produce should be used to identify suitable land.
