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

 

With organic sugar they said!

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

When:  Every Sunday 1000-1500 hrs

Entry:  Rs 10 to enter the park
