MABALACAT CITY, Pampanga—Makeshift stalls were set up Wednesday at the commercial area of the Clark Freeport Zone on for 79 Aetas to display and sell their products after they were trained by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).

In a statement, the Clark Development Corporation (CDC) said the “Ayta Na” farmers’ market offers Aetas’s produce like fruits and vegetables as well as souvenir items.
