There is a new platter awaiting the residents of Cuffe Parade. The festival, called Organic Farmers Market, which kicks off here from Saturday, will see a host of organic fruits and vegetables on sale.
The festival will be held from 10 am to 3 pm, close to Makers Arcade, where farmers from Nasik will sell organic products at affordable prices. The fest is organised by local BJP Corporator Harshita Narvekar with an objective to spread healthy lifestyle.
The market will be a weekly event and will be held until December 17. The show will have stalls giving lessons on pottery making, tattoo booths, balloon sculpting and music. Narvekar said, “Even if the parents are busy buying the vegetables, the children can come and enjoy. Our objective is to promote healthy eating habits. We have also arranged talks by nutritionists”.
Some of the major key attractions of the festival would be shopping stalls selling clothes made with organic elements for children, especially. Stalls selling organic cosmetics, clay cookware and organic cafe will also be put up. Devendra B, a resident of Churchgate, said, “It a very positive step that such festivals are being arranged, where ideas for enriching our lifestyle will be talked about. I am also interested in listening to the nutritionists and take guidance from them.”
