  • Organic Farmers' Market in Hong Kong

    This organic farmers' market opens every Sunday from 11:00 to 17:00 in the Central District in Hong Kong (Star Ferry Pier). There are only about 10 stalls, selling organic vegetables grown locally. Although small, it is a very vibrant organic farmers' market. These are what I can observe in the market: 1. The stall holders are the farmers themselves. They are friendly and are happy to answer customers' questions on their vegetables. In the regular vegetable markets in Hong Kong that I have visited. The stall holders are usually not very friendly and they could not provide much information on the vegetables that they are selling. 2. Most customers have their own shopping bags. The stalls do not provide plastic bags. 3. The vegetables sold there are not so "good-lookong" and are not of un...

The HKFYG Organic Farm in Yuen Long produces 42,000 catties of seasonal crops annually and is the only one with the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) organic certification. The farm cannot solely depend on the mass production of organic vegetables, which are sold to supermarkets, vegetable stores and customers' homes.

Think of the tomatoes you see in a supermarket, they are usually of amazingly uniform size and colour, which is a bit unnatural. I remember what my mother-in-law, who is a farmer, told me:"If a fruit looks perfect, do not eat it." 4. Although there are only about 10 stalls, quite of lot of varieties of vegetables are sold there, some are hardly seen in a regular vegetable market.

Close, lettuce in basket LEAD IN A series of food scares on mainland China have boosted sales of organic foods in Hong Kong. Organic production only began in 1988 but farmers are now breaking even. STORYLINE Cheung Din-hung and his colleague are picking organic vegetables in their field at Happy Organic Farm. Din-hung used to have an office job, but he wanted to do his bit for the environment. He rents around five thousand square feet of land in Hong Kong's Tuen Mun district, where he produces organic fruits and vegetables. Mainland China has a very cheap vegetable production and products reach Hong Kong customers at a fraction of Din-hung's prices. But quality issues and recent health scandals have encouraged organic farming. Organic farming has its own tricks and methods.
