Organic Farmers Market, a collective of youngsters with hole-in-the-wall organic stores, brings to Chennai the best of produce from across the country

Every grain of rice, millet, and pulse in the garage has a story to it. They have journeyed from farms near and far to occupy the racks at the hub of the Organic Farmers Market (OFM) at Kasturba Nagar, Adyar. Farmers with a heart have cultivated them — Mukesh from Nagpur, Chandrasekaran from Thalavady, Vijay Jardhari from Uttarakhand. Prod a little and you can find out the names of the people who grew them, and where they are from.
