These pop-up markets in Mumbai offer farm fresh fruits and veggies

For an early start

The Better Foods Farmers’ Market debuted on March 25 at the iconic Royal Western India Turf Club, better known as Mahalaxmi Racecourse. Two things set this Sunday market apart from the already existing ones. First, it’s accessible to shoppers from SoBo, unlike the others that are mostly concentrated in the suburbs. Second, it starts much earlier in the morning, so you can head there straight after your morning run. Started by Subham Kar Chaudhuri, the president of The Food Truck Association (TFTA), this market features farmers from across Maharashtra selling fresh local produce, as well as live demo counters and workshops for kids. “With the live demos, we get chefs to show people how they can use the produce available at the market itself. We also recently held a composting workshop. These workshops are meant to give kids access to knowledge they won’t gain in school,” says partner Tanvi Somani. She adds that the aim of the market is to create a space where farmers (who are part of the Natures Gram collective) can directly meet consumers, and a platform for people to socialise over food.
