All fresh and more at Shang The Marketplace’s Farm to Table
Kick-off a Delightful August with the anticipated farmers’ market
It is all set to be a Dealightful month as Shangri-La Plaza welcomes August with a fresh start. The Marketplace is bringing back its popular Farm to Table market at the Grand Atrium on August 4-7 to continue its support of local farmers.
Similar to previous runs, Farm to Table mounts a wonderful farmers’ market featuring a wide range of locally grown organic products, hydroponic items, goods with sustainable packaging, as well as some carefully curated imported selections. The Marketplace at the Shang is also introducing a number of new experiences for mall guests this year – including the Dizon Salad Bar that lets shoppers create their own salads using fresh ingredients on the spot, for a truly farm-to-table affair.
As a special treat, for only P999, mall guests can join the Fresh Harvest All-You-Can where they can fill their baskets with as much produce as they can in 60 seconds! There’s no weight limit but items should be assorted with a maximum of three pieces per fruit or vegetable. Be sure to head over on August 6 as early as 10AM for the registration and for the actual harvest-all-you-can experience at 3-9PM.
The Marketplace’s Farm to Table event aims to aid local farmers in building sustainable channels for selling their crops and produce. The supermarket buys directly and regularly from these growers, helping them with their production planning and forecasting. To date, over 700 local farmers benefit from this The Marketplace initiative.
The Marketplace is also taking this opportunity to further support the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Every purchase at Farm to Table helps fill care boxes with fruits and vegetables for children who are bravely battling critical illnesses.
The huge indoor market event kicks off Shang’s Delightful August that aim to highlight delicious dishes and unique food experiences that are indeed a delight – both on tastes and pockets. Browse and buy at The Marketplace’s Farm to Table for everything fresh and healthy.
