Evening Organic Farmers Market at Straits Quay, Penang

The next Evening Organic Farmers Market will be held on 21 June, 2015 from 4pm to 7pm. An important objective of these markets is to build a bond between the farmers and end users. We want to increase the confidence of the public in the authenticity of our organic products and build understanding of the challenges these small farmers face. We expect 19 participants, with fresh organic fruits and vegetables, free-range eggs, herbs & spices. There will also be vegan dishes such as nasi kerabu (some dishes are prepared using pottery cookware), peanut butter, mushroom growing kits, artistic performances, hand-made soap and other hand-made products and much more besides.
We started with these markets last year April in order to introduce healthy organic food to the community. Together, Real Food and the Farmers also hope to raise awareness of the environmental friendliness of organic farming, our food production without pesticides and other poisons. We want to protect our environment for future generations so that they too might enjoy good health through organic food.
These activities are organized by Real Food and the Straits Quay management. The Evening Organic Farmers Market will be held on the 3rd Sunday of every month. The venue will be at Real Food, Straits Quay. For further information, please contact Ms Carmen on 04-8908295.

Pesticides Action Network Asia Pacific (PANAP) will also be there so please drop by our booth to view our photo gallery of the PhotoVoice Workshop we conducted in Cameron Highlands with schoolchildren at an organic farm and pick up our Protect Our Children Against Toxic Pesticides Campaign materials for free! There will also be a Zee the Bee children’s storytelling session at Straits Quay at 5.30-6.00pm on Sunday.
