With this in mind, organizers at JJ Farmer’s Market have organized their market into three categories: first a “Pure Organic” hall by local farmers, next to it is the “Pesticide Safe” hall with crispy salads and fresh parsley, and finally the hall with breads, fried snacks and cooked meals ready to go (vegetarian and non-vegetarian). A great way to make it clear for customers in search of true quality product. And, don’t forget to bring your own shopping bag!
JJ Farmer’s Market has a lot more to offer. Walking in the little alleys of the market, you’ll find a stand of Anatami Edamame Milk. A cup of edamame soy milk provides 33 grams of protein, it is a great source of essential amino acids and a change from traditional soy milk. Anatani is a home made product, cooked according to Japanese recipes. It is all 100% natural, with no preservative, no coloric and using only a low amount of organic sugar, plus it is possible to order with no sugar at all. (Facebook: Anatani Edamame)
Another healthy product made in Northern Thailand is the “Hilltribe Organic Eggs” product. Based near Chiang Rai, this social enterprise produces high value organic eggs and improves the livelihoods of mountain communities in a sustainable and scalable way. The company supplies hilltribes with all necessary inputs free of charge, such as the organic chickens, organic feed, and farmer training, and garantees a market for the eggs at a fair and predictable price. Eggs are sold to consumers through organic and premium supermarkets such as Rimping and Tops. Recently, Hilltribe Organic Eggs commenced its first exports to Hong Kong (www.hilltribeorganics.com).
Healthy people, seeking a caffeine fit will be happy to discover MiVana’s coffee, shade-grown and handpicked close to a national park on the way to Chiang Rai. This 100% organic Arabica coffee is produced at altitudes of 1,000 meters or more, above the sea level. Shade-grown organic coffee refers to the coffee beans being grown under large trees. Coffee grown this way gives a fuller and heartier aroma than coffee grown in full sun. In Chiang Mai, you can enjoy delicious MiVana Coffee at Tamarind Village Hotel, on Ratchadamnoen Road, Chiang Mai.
