The Farmers’ Market @ Central Singapore is now in its third year running! This monthly event is one of the Central Singapore Community Development Council’s programmes advocating healthy eating. This roving pop-up mini market showcases a wide range of fresh local produce and other organic products.

For January’s installment, the market was held at Whampoa Community Club, a location primed to reach out to heartland residents and reach out it did indeed. The crowd ranged from young schoolchildren (mostly curious about the honeybees displayed at one stall) to elderly ladies with shopping bags haggling vigorously over freshly picked vegetables at an organic vegetable stall. The event was held just before the Lunar New Year, and festive decorations dotted the venue.

The market featured 16 local producers who sold cold-brewed coffees, protein smoothies, ethically farmed chicken, and homegrown honey, among other healthy offerings. Besides being an excellent platform for small local producers to touch base and interact with everyday Singaporeans, the market was also a great way for people to learn about and get a taste of sustainable produce and products that support healthy eating and living.

Watch highlights of what the market had to offer here.

Make Perfect French Fries Every Time

Everybody loves french fries. They are the perfect combination of grease, salt, comforting carbs and they can be eaten alone or with your favourite meat dish. Sure, you could buy a bag of frozen fries from the supermarket and fry them up in no time. But they taste inferior to freshly made fries and contain so many preservatives it makes your shampoo look like an organic smoothie. Even worse, some brands of frozen fries use trans-fat, which is bad for …
