Organic Food Products Sold During the 2nd Agricultural Produce and Crafts Fair
Around 25 agricultural enterprises and individuals have displayed and sold ecological agricultural products which include organic vegetables, poultry, fruits and crafts during the second Shenzhen Agricultural Produce and Crafts Market at the Guan Shanyue Art Museum during the weekend. Visitors who came and left the exhibition know have a better understanding of organic food.
The market was started by a group of residents from Shenzhen that are interested in food safety and ecological farming. One of the organizer said that a lot of people in Shenzhen are not familiar with ecological farming or are aware of the presence of local organic farms in their area. Many of the organic farms are located in Shenzhen and Huizhou. The organizers also said that the market was the perfect tool in introducing local organic farm produce to more local residents.
Other than locally grown foods, some types of food from other part of China made their way to the market which is a good way to enter Shenzhen. Aside from other foods, green inventions were also placed on display such as green shopping bags made from eggshells that are biodegradable.
If the farmers market is deemed successful, the organizers will turn the market into a weekly event.
