Although I was aware of this in the seasons gone; but never imagined its following. The Farmers’ Market connects Mumbai with organic farmers across Maharashtra, essentially a marketplace to buy organic fare; from soaps to lentils to oils. This season started on 6th October and will happen every Sunday till end of March at the Maharashtra Nature Park (MNP), Dharavi. Frankly I was embarrassed to discover MNP after 3 decades of being a Mumbaikar; it is a place which will interest botany students or nature lovers or people who are looking for some tranquil green spot in the city.
What can you expect?
– Organic vegetables from farm to the table
– Organic cereals/lentils/preserves
– Organic Ready to eats
– Organic cosmetics
– Natural café dishing out some healthy fare
The music, various workshops, ‘fresh oxygen’ in the greens, people lazing around in the lawns, masseurs doling out quick foot massages make it a ‘weekend getaway’ like experience . With every passing Sunday it just gets bigger and better, I hear!
Where: MNP, Opposite Dharavi Bus depot,Sion, Mumbai
