Context of the observation

Wakulima Market is the key distribution point for vegetables and fruit in Nairobi, important for Nairobi’s economy. Most of the traders are farmers, others are brokers who go from farm to farm and also meet small-scale farmers to collect produce and to bring this to the market in bales. The fresh produce arrives in Nairobi from 47 Kenyan districts as well as Tansania and Uganda. The majority of this passes through the bottlenecks of wholesale markets such as Wakulima before the produce moves on, in small quantities, to retail markets, kiosks, street vendors, and greengrocers.
