Was checking out events in hyderabad on Allevents.in and came across an Organic Bazaar at Saptaparni that is held on the first Sunday of every month.
Was curious to see what is sold at the bazaar.
These pics are from Saptaparni , Banjara Hills.
There are organic veggies, fruits, healthy bakery foods, soaps made from pure natural products, handlooms, handmade jewellery, bags ,cold pressed oils, mud vessels, organic mosquito repellent , beauty products, free range poultry eggs etc
The items were getting sold like hot cakes.
After a few days I learnt that an organic bazaar is held at Lamakaan , Banjara hills every Sunday.
Went there this morning .
The veggies dont appear as fresh and as healthy as those on the shelves of a supermarket. They appear distorted.There are some veggies from original native seeds like tomatoes , ginger garlic etc. There have bananas which are ripened naturally .Many veggies are of hybrid variety but would have been grown without chemical pesticides and chemical fertilisers. One has to be knowledgeable while buying stuff.
Here is the produce that I bought this morning .
Tamarind, organic sugar, tur dal, moong dal, shampoo soap , ponnaganti koora ,papaya and honey (not seen in the pic)
There was this girl who was selling organic produce from her dad’s farm in Krishna district of Andhra Pradesh. Said that they use natural manure which makes the food tasty and nutritious.
I checked the Facebook page mentioned on the packet and found that her father did receive awards .
UPR Organic farms is created by this girl for her father.
Got me thinking about the good stuff that the girl is doing for her dad and for popularising organic stuff.
