Market in Chennai area helps organic farmers

Chennai: Despite the sky-rocketing popularity of organic farming and the benefits it brings, the farmer community continues to be sidelined when it comes to fixing prices, so to say.

In this juncture, a non-profit organisation named Organic Farmers Market (OFM) has come up with the idea of setting up a modern day sandhai at Mahalingapuram at Kodambakkam in the city.

The market that was started on 12 November is put up every Sunday from 10 am to 1 pm, and sells only organic items.
