The second Bangkok Farmers’ Market took place today at K Village on Sukhumwit Soi 26. The event was well attended by organic and health food vendors as well as by the general public. It was particularly great to see such a large interest in this event among the expats in Bangkok. It really felt like a community event as everyone was so friendly.
There were about 60 vendors at the event selling everything from organic produce to health food. There was also home baked bread, vegan and vegetarian food, honey, herbs and a large variety of fruit and vegetables. The vendors at each event won’t be the same as the organizers say that there is a pool of 300 vendors that they pick from for each event.
The first Farmers’ Market was back in March at Four Points by Sheraton on Sukhumwit Soi 15. As I said before, this was the second event. I spoke with one of the organizers this afternoon and he told me that they are now planning on holding a Farmers’ Market every Saturday in Bangkok. If this goes to plan, this will start in early June and will take place at a different venue each week.
For the latest information you can follow them on their Facebook page. As soon as I hear a confirmed date (at the moment I believe it will be Saturday 8th June at Four Points) I will tweet about it on @RichardBarrow and also blog here on www.RichardBarrow.com. I have posted over 100 pictures from today’s event on my Facebook page here.
