We get to hear very few of these!! So when I came across one… I couldn’t resist putting it up! Yes… I am talking a festival celebrating and exhibiting “Made in Singapore” fresh produce! Welcome to the Singapore Farm Festival and 4th Kranji Countryside Farmers’ Market – a market place like no other… literally. Bringing together over 50 stalls of locally grown produce and locally made artisanal products, this bustling celebration spreads over 2 days this coming weekend (30 & 31 May, 2015) from 2pm to 9pm at Nyee Phoe, 240 Neo Tiew Crescent, Singapore.

So what can you expect at Kranji Countryside Association’s (KCA) fourth edition of Singapore Farm Festival? Well loads… especially if you are on a look out for exposure to Organic Food made in Singapore.

The event promises to be a celebration of local manufacturers and the unique blend of local products they will showcase. The market will also showcase local urban farmers imparting knowledge on how to farm in a predominantly urban setting. Further, Edible Garden City will team up with Artichoke Café to create farm-to-table salads, mains and desserts during the farmers’ market. And all this is not enough to get you there, try Sunset Party as the reason? The event will showcase local talent in open air Sunset Party hosted by Gardenasia on both days from 6pm to 9pm.
