Today Saturday 25th (one month away from Christmas) and tomorrow Sunday 26th Vincent’s Eco Farm is holding their very first Organic Christmas Market. Veggy Malta went to see what was happening.
People were already flowing there at 11.00am. There are some very interesting stalls. There obviously is Vincent’s Eco farm team in full. Tasting of farm-made chili, jams and chutneys. Also a selection of cheeses, along a nice display of pottery. There obviously is all the organic fresh produce that you can buy from the farm along with a shop bustling with good healthy stuff.
First stand I visited was that of Anurakti. They make raw energy balls and muffins. They are there on Saturday only. Check out their raw vegan cakes and Christmas treats prepared in a 100% gluten free and vegan kitchen. Alan and Adriana emphasised that their products have no added sugar or refined ingredients.
Next stand was Juice Delights managed by Sarah. She said that her ginger shots (I tried one and it was delicious), help the body’s immunity system. They help boost energy, clean the body from toxins and also aid in weight loss. I guess I should camp in front of her booth!
Close by is Farmer’s Deli, with a range of products all Bio. The products are mostly vegetarian and vegan and area all fair trade. They carry an interesting range of products, that would be of interest to all.
Next stand was by Free (known as TigerRice). They are promoting fresh vegan foods made in Gozo. Basically they produce fresh gluten free, dairy free, soya free, eggs free bread, pizza bases and buns. The great thing is that you can freeze the product and then reheat it.
Food Therapy is next, and yes its the name of the stand. They produce raw gluten free foods. Particularly attracted my eye were he raw gluten free deserts; chololate bars, match a matchstick, venus, pistachio delight and Christmas special.
Shakti is there as well offering artisan and locally made natural perfumes. Thea stated that you can splash these around with no worries as they are fully natural.
If by now you are tired, then its time for a coffee at Coffee Circus. Alana produces a cup of organic coffee be it a blend or a single origin.
Keep on going and you will see Bowtega’s stand. Laura has a range of hair products for children. You will find from her stuff you normally find on the island like a bow in 40 different colours. Interesting that she gave that example to a totally bald guy! But I am sure my girls loved that fact.
My Barefoot Island was next. Luiza offers market bags and beach bags hand made in Ghana using elephant grass. Also some products hand made in Bali. There is a range of Turkish towels worth having a look at.
Then there is Nel who makes products from cement and (yellow pages) paper. You can find candle holders, pots, Christmas decorations all creatively done and coloured.
Finally going all the way round is Sue’s jewels with a selection of handmade semi-precious stones. Some made by herself, some designed by herself and others chosen. Sue states taht her products are inspired by nature and beauty.
If you didn’t go to Vincent’s Eco Farm Organic Christmas Market today it is open tomorrow Sunday between 10.00am and 5.00pm. After a black Friday lets have a green weekend!
