The First Edition of the Woodside Farmers Market is happening in Chennai on Sunday March 6th from 10 am to 5 pm.
We spoke to Mohan Daniel from D and A events about bringing together some of the finest produce from all over Tamil Nadu.
“I run an event management company. I wanted to organise this event only out of a personal interest for organic produce. I feel like this side of the city hasn’t seen an event like this. We’ve handpicked the participants for their different and varied offerings. There will be around 16 participants this time.
“We have some interesting people taking the stage- Veggie Meat sausages out of vegetables by the Veggy Table, Mitti Cool- a fridge maker who doesn’t need electricity, Caroselle cheeses from Kodaikanal and Aurosoya with smoked tofu, Future Farms that enable you to grow herbs without soil and so much more.
“Entry is free of charge and the first 100 visitors get a free tote! Lots of good food to buy specially cakes and bakes, Kerala home cooked delicacies and Syrian pickles. Drop in, laze around and eat food the way it was meant to be on Sunday! ”
The list of stalls at the market include, Fluffy Tubs, Aurosoya, Caroselle, Mystique Sensations, Farm Fresh from Cumbam, Gulabs, Veggy Table, Lydia and Bibi’s Foodies, Mitti Cool, Paperman, Namma Farm, Heritage Blend, Future Farms, Sherry’s and Ammini’s pickles. There will also be Woodside Collections, stocking a variety of cottage industry products like table cloths, place mats, table napkins and kitchen towels.
