Open Farm Community’s first Social Market of 2017

By  |  0 Comments

Open Farm Community (OFC) will be hosting their first Social Market of 2017 from 4 – 5 March, from 11am to 5pm. These event will bring together local farmers, producers, makers and bakers to further strengthen the local community and showcase the best of what the Singapore soil has to offer.

A curated line-up of over 30 passionate vendors will be peddling their wares at the market ranging from house plants to sweet and sticky honey to organic, honest skincare and jars of homemade jam. Some recognised brands include naturally nectarous Soi Coco coconut shakes and products; fresh Kuhlbarra barramundi farmed from local waters; and organic homemade granola from SPGranola.

The OFC booth will be selling fresh juices and farm-fresh bites, including a live grill station where fresh produce purchased from our vendors can be grilled on the spot, complemented with sauces and dips created by OFC’s kitchen.

The market grounds will also play host to communal activities such as yoga classes held on the outdoor lawn; an Open Air Cinema sunset screening of ‘My Dharma’, a collaborative documentary detailing internationally renowned yogis from different yoga traditions; and nifty gardening workshops by Edible Garden City that aims to bring the “Grow Your Own Food” movement closer to home.

At the main restaurant, guests can try OFC’s updated selections of seasonal, innovative and honest dishes including a Steak tartare marinated with ginger chilli (S$26++) or the Roasted red snapper (S$32++) that sits on a spread of OFC’s own roselle and hibiscus ketchup, pickled cucumbers and a calamansi and sesame cucumber salad.

Note that OFC’s parking space will be transformed in to a market place and therefore the nearest parking spaces are available at Minden Road, next to St George’s Church and adjacent to Sherwood Road, as well as at Singapore Botanic Gardens.
