It may be the day of rest for some, a day of running for others; but I think we should all agree that Sunday is a day to be good to ourselves. No matter what your definition of good is, there are few ways to be any gooder {not a word, we know} than pure, unadulterated produce, to be picked up from the Gurgaon Organic Farmers’ Market.

That it’s organic, is understood. The principle behind the market is very clear – independent growers, who may or may not have gone down the route of merchanidisng their wares in shops, get a platform to bring their produce to the table. Buyers, in turn, can shop at prices that your sabzi-wala would have bought at himself. No middleman fee, plus you get the best of the crop. Now that’s a bounty!

Don’t expect any poshness or peppered phrases of French that we’ve come to associate with organic bazaars – what you will find though, are more colours of carrots than even Bugs Bunny knew existed, beautiful bell-shaped courgettes, crunchy mooli and purple-sprouting broccoli.

You’ll find your fair share of organic goods like wholewheat multigrain breads, homemade jams & preserves and the occasional muffin too.

Show up to show support for independent growers and conscientious food-makers, or get your loot so that the week ahead is guaranteed to be at least one type of good.
