Local, Fresh, Organic, Sustainable: Zen Village Farmer's Market

The Zen Village Farmer's Market is bringing local farmers together with the goal of providing affordable organic produce to the public.

The market is open every Sunday from 9am-3pm at Zen Village, 3570 Main Hwy., Coconut Grove. Information at 305-567-0165 and online at www.zenvillage.org.

Zen Village is a multi-cultural, united-faith organization and Buddhist temple that promotes spiritual well-being, diversity, and holistic wellness. The center offers healthy lifestyle education and wellness techniques that promote healing and self development. Zen Village's focus is to train instructors and healers to become community leaders in the holistic wellness professions with the hope of bringing on a healthier and better community. The mission of Zen Village is to teach individuals to nurture self and others by providing valuable ancient wisdom on holistic harmony in people's lives.

The goal with the Farmer's Market is to promote sustainable healthy living! Nutrition plays a big role in the cultivation of wellness. It is important to be mindful of the foods we eat.

Embracing sustainable living is a cyclic and synergistic effort. Local farmers are encouraged to do what they do best: grow healthy and organic produce free of pesticides, GMO agents, and other dangerous toxins. But most important of all, they grow them with love!

Consumers are always encouraged to eat whole foods that have been cultivated with integrity for overall good health. Hence, good nutrition is an important component for overall well-being. Thus, the farmer-consumer relationship is synergistic because the more local organically grown produce consumed, the more farmers are encouraged to continue their business at affordable prices.

Zen Village understands the importance of this relationship and offers the center free of charge to the farmers every Sunday.

A special emphasis of Asian vegetables will be showcased along with delicious foods prepared by professional chefs!
