The project’s Thai campaign on Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) in the agri-food sector is partnering with this farmers’ market in efforts to lead consumers to making responsible consumption choices. The local farmers’ market featured more than 30 vendors.
Visitors were able to browse local organic products like pesticide-free fibered pillows, organic coffee beans from high altitude grown coffee trees, artisan breads, and silver handcrafted jewelries – all produced and sold at fair prices.
The market also hosted four hands on interactive workshops that taught participants and onlookers about various agriculture and urban farming topics, such as growing your own nutrient-dense vegetable greens, tips on how to run a profitable microgreen business at home, sustainable waste management and organic fertilizer production, food waste across Bangkok, etc.
This series of cooperation between the #EatBetter campaign and Jai Talad farmers’ market will be continued.
