Farmers Market @ UNU

The word “culture” is said to be derived from the word “cultivate”.

For those of us who live in cities, food is the closest thing to nature; what we eat, who we eat with, and how we eat it, shapes not only our minds and bodies, but also our society.
When we choose something, do we care about the price, the appearance or the taste? The maker, the eater, the deliverer, so many thoughts and systems are intertwined that even a single apple reflects society.
The Farmers’ Market is a community of farmers, cooks, artisans and city dwellers. Fresh, hearty and delicious food brings people together, and from these connections, creative situations for the future are sure to emerge.
