Samui Green Market today
We just got back from the Samui Green Market today in Fisherman's Village, having bought some delicious and healthy food to take home and sampling some of the good stuff on the spot.
The 'Welcome' sign of this month' Samui Green Market today
It's a small and intimate market with a lot of potential to grow and there's always some good and healthy food to be found plus various other natural and organic products, like handmade chocolate.
The in-house Greenlight Cafe had a buffet with loads of lovely snacks, including quinoa beans rolls (what a 'super' food quinoa is!), tofu and Thai wraps, pita and some great hummus and tahini dressings to go with it
They start to draw a good crowd and Samui Mala is doing a superb job of organizing the Samui Green Market today at least once a month.
Home baked German bread for sale, including a sour dough version, which I really enjoy and some pretzels on the side
Since I changed my diet some 3 years ago and started paying a lot more attention to what I eat, organic foods are a lot more welcome and sought after in our house. Just a shame that organic food is almost always more expensive compared to the non organic version, as if you're being punished for wanting to eat healthy! At The Samui Green market today, there were some good deals and prices to be had though, another reason to visit!
Face painting, always a fave with the kids!
Stay tuned for more updates on my bog for next month's version of the Samui Green Market, it shold be roughly in 4 weeks time.
Phil of the Samui snake rescue with a rather rare Mangrove rat snake, which is rather mildly venomous, according to Phil, you will only notice and/or feel the fang bite! Due to it's colors and lines on the skin, it is easily confused with a very poisonous krait snake.
An overview of the Samui Green Market today, with plenty of tables to sit down and enjoy the food on offer and stalls around the pool, where you can buy lots of local made organic produce
Sweet Sisters Cafe has always had a stand on all previous Samui Green Markets and today was no exception. They had plenty of goodies on offer and it's well worth a visit in the South of the island, at Ban Bang Kao for some of the best lunches on the island. They're now open 7 days a week, just since last week.
Freshly roasted coffee was also for sale, roasted whilst you waited for it
Hope you enjoy this entry and try to visit the Samui Green Market next time, Somewhere during January 2016, exact date still to be announced, watch this site!
