I have been receiving mails from my Post Grad google group about an upcoming Farmer's Market that's starting in Mumbai from this Sunday. Its basically an initiative to popularize and make freely available, organic produce that farmer's can sell straight to the consumers without any middle men.
I have heard and read about Farmer's markets abroad and am really excited about visiting this one in Mumbai and looking at everything thats going to be on offer!
So all those of you who are in this city, do take out the time to come and check it out. Am posting the details below from the mails I have received.
I am writing to tell you about an exciting new venture. Its 'The Farmers' Market' and its happening every Sunday, beginning March 21st.
The Farmers’ Market will connect Mumbai with organic farmers across Maharashtra. You will now be able to buy fresh, organically certified, fruits and vegetables directly from farmers every Sunday.
The Farmers’ Market will also be packed with new and exciting organic and earth-friendly trade.
21st March onwards, every Sunday:
Bandra Hindu Association
(South-west of National College)
Food, non-food, healers, therapists
Anyone & anything organic & natural are welcome
A huge organic turnout is expected
Organic farmers need all our support
Especially if we are to oust GM foods
& the looming danger to our food security
Also if you or anyone you know
Would like to sponsor a stall
Please let us know

We look forward to seeing you on 21 March
And every Organic Sunday thereafter
