    • Dear Rupali,

      Thanks a lot. I also myself asked the same question. Yes, they have buyers all the time, specially during the spring and summer seasons. People/tourists coming in visit and then buy something from time to time. During our visit, there was also a group of tourists from Slovenia.

      Love,

      Amela
