The morels needn’t feel pressurised. Not all the magic at this Sunday farmers’ market must come from the mushrooms. The fact that we can sip on G&Ts while buying garlic and green beans, is all the magic we need, thanks very much.
Bookmark this Sunday for Sustainable Sundaze at The Quarter, a farmers’ market that crops up on the lawns of The Royal Opera House. Thirty farmers from in and around Maharashtra will sell you regular fruits and veggies, but also produce that’s hard to come by at your regular market. “We’ve got some pretty incredible yams,” Nico Goghavala, partner at The Quarter, tells us.
Besides buying your produce for the month, you can also stock up on new and usual-suspect super foods like Mo's Kefir; Break of Dawn almond milk; Danz bread; nut butters; and organic honey by 7 Seeds Honey. And right in time for summer, a range of cool, organic clothes and jewellery has also been curated.
LPs and GTs
Once your basket is full, grab a drink from the gin bar and hang out at Revolver Club’s vinyl pop up booth or spend the rest of the day eating fresh, hand-rolled Neapolitan pizzas and listening to a jazz band. You can also sign up for workshops and sourdough baking classes by RSVPing in advance.
And now for the best bit: The waste and leftovers from this event will be turned into compost, and added to the green gardens of The Royal Opera House. It isn’t over until the fat lady-finger sings.
Getting there: On Sunday, March 25, 2 pm onwards, The Quarter, Royal Opera House, Mathew Road, Opera House, Girgaon, call 8329110638, free entry, RSVP for workshops on https://insider.in.
