Seems to be the season of Farmers Markets. I went to a Farmers Market last Sunday at The Yoga House in Indiranagar, Bangalore. Stalls showcasing delicious organic honey (monofloral and regular) by Honey Day, pomegranate tea, chocolates and toffees by Maduban, a variety of organic foods by the organic store i2cook, whole wheat goodies by Lluvia bakery, organic millet cookies by Belly & Soul, and the ever popular organic dairy foods by Akshayakalpa and much-in-demand organic fresh vegetables & grains by Buffalo Back. Although it was a small initiative, I picked up some nice items in this market which was put together by Vishalakshi Padmanabhan of Buffalo Back.
And there’s another Farmers Market organised by the well known food expert, Karen Anand, on Sunday, March 2nd at the Royal Orchid Hotel (off old airport road) from 11 am to 7 pm. Participants vary from restaurants and home bakers to wineries and foodies. One can expect organic vegetables, fruits, cheeses, bakery foods and gourmet foods in this market. Culinary demonstrations are also planned.
