Two Farmer’s Markets In Mumbai This Sunday

Kavita Mukhis Farmer’s Market is quite popular in Mumbai city.. It made its maiden appearance at Nilgiri Gardens in Bandra, then shifted to another location at Hill Road and lately it is held regularly at the Maharastra Nature Park in Dharavi. There is fresh produce and few organic foods stalls, this is a perfect place to spend the Sunday mornings.

But this Sunday, Mumbai has another Farmer’s Market with the same name but a different host.  This one is helmed by cookbook author and restaurateur Karen Anand, who organizes similar events in Pune. She will have her event on December 1st at The Westin Mumbai Garden City of Goregoan.

What is interesting about this Farmer’s Market is that it is on a bigger scale, with more hours, (10am to 7pm) because in addition to a season produce by Trikaya Agriculture and Vrindavan Farms, there are many more things by well know brands.

Some of the produces that you may find at Goregoan are fresh fruit juices, kitchen props and tableware. There will also be stalls by Bandra Café Piccoli Tortini, Punjab Grill, Bandra Sandwich shop, Versovas casual dining restaurants Jam Jar Diner, dessert caterers such as Icing On Top, The Vanilla Bean and Cheesecake Republic and wineries such as Sula, Myra and Charosa.

So it looks like more of a food festival to spend a day with family and friends. All you need is an empty shopping basket and pocket full of cash.

The name "Bombay" was derived from 'Bom Bahia' (The Good Bay),

.... a name given by Portuguese sailor Francis Almeida, in 1508 ....“Bounce back Mumbai” it is called by the locals, it is a city that has been through a lot in the recent past – floods, bomb blasts, riots – and come out stronger each time.
