Organic Farmers Market sets up market in Velacheri

Chennai: At a time when chemical-free, unadulterated food is hard to find, Organic Farmers Market (OFM) sets up a make-shift market at Film Street, Tansi Nagar, on Sundays.

It is an initiative by ‘Organic’ Ananthu, who aims to give consistent, continuous availability of safe food at a fair price. OFM wants to protect the livelihoods of organic farmers, spread awareness on safe food for everyone.

Seetha Lakshmi, a volunteer said, “The idea of Safe Food Sundays is to give good quality food to consumers at a fair price for the benefit of both the farmers and customers. It will be open every Sunday from 4.30 to 7.30 pm.”

The produce comes from 40-50 farmers in Pudukottai, Chidambaram and Kanchipuram.
