A Trip to Farmer's Market @ Central Park

Last week, I found out that 1 Utama will be organising their first Farmer's Market @ Central Park via a brochure placed on one of their counters. Looks interesting, I thought. So we headed over there yesterday after our morning walk at the park.


The Farmer's Market comprises around 10 - 12 stalls occupying a small section of Central Park. There were stalls selling mushrooms, organic vegetables, local and imported fruits, potted plants, bread and home-made jam.


I was quite excited to find these carrot complete with their roots and tops at this organic vegetable stall. Super cute!


Gourmet homemade jam in unique flavours such as Apple & Kiwi, Pineapple & Papaya and Butterscotch Pumpkin. The same stall sells organic yoghurt as well.


We got two bottles of jam, a pack of sweet seedless grapes and a pack of baby sweet potatoes from the market, in addition to the free cherry tomatoes through the redemption. I love the pumpkin jam!



As it is the first time 1 Utama organized this event, I supposed there is room for improvement in getting more awareness on this event as the crowd was relatively small. The publicity in 1 Utama was quite minimal and it was by chance I got the brochure I decided to drop by the market. The next market will be held on the 1st Sunday of September.

I will most likely miss the next Farmer's Market in September due to my confinement, so hopefully I could drop by again in October, this time with hubby and baby!

Haha I also bought gourmet jam yesterday - Pineapple + Cempedak in one jar. Shaw Parade flea market - very cina & creative stuff, stuff you see on Etsy (but I think it's even better than Etsy).

For example this one - www.jainabee.etsy.com, has origami in their cosmetics, quite amazing!

wouldn't the flavour be too strong? Is it nice?

The origami earrings look interesting...

Swee San, it's supposed to be but I'm not sure if they are going to continue this as I have not heard news on November's specials. But the signboard in Central Park itself looks permanent.
