Organic Food Bowl Night Market at Centris

Now, a marketplace for safe and healthy fresh produce and products made available to the public — from vegetables to grains to animal and fish products. A marketplace that works on the concept of accessibility, sustainability, and fair trade practices to capture the bulk buying demand and promote sustainable lifestyle.

Big groups of organic and natural farming practitioners have signified their interest to support by joining the market: The Organic Producers Trade Association (OPTA), One Organic Movement of the Philippines with the Agri-Aqua Network International, Inc. (AANI), Go Organic Philippines, Intercontinental Network of Organic Farmers Organizations (INOFO), Philippine Development Assistance Program, Inc. (PDAP), Kasama Ka Organik Cooperative, Aquarius Agricultural Source Corporation (AASCORP), Magsasaka at Siyentipiko para sa Pag-unlad ng Agrikutura (MASIPAG), the natural farming advocates under the Philippine Natural Farming, Inc. (PNFI), Organic na Negros Organic Producers and Retailers Association (ONOPRA), biodynamic farms under the Agrikultura Natural, Inc. (ANI) Mo, Cosmic Farm of Benguet State University, La Trinidad, the Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries (ARBs) under the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) and the Agribusiness Marketing Assistance Service of the Department of Agriculture (DA-AMAS). The Department of Health (DOH) and the Department of Tourism (DOT) were also tapped by the organizers to support through an information campaign to reach its target buyers” said Ms. Sharon Tan, co-organizer of the Food Bowl Night Market.

“The potential for the organically grown produce and foods is growing both domestically and abroad due to the increasing health, environment and social concerns. Food Bowl Night Market will highlight crops and commodities of Philippine “SUSTAINABLE AGRIBUSINESS”. Its quality should also meet the demand for its quantity. The Crops, Commodities and Technologies Section will showcase farmers, fisher folks and organizations providing safe and healthy food to Filipinos and present the value chain: production, processing and marketing. This will be a good start for the farmers to program their production to meet the requirements of institutional buyers especially from hospitals, restaurants, hotels and food caterers” she added.

Other than natural, organic and biodynamic farm produce which includes vegetables, fruits, rice, fisheries, live stock, native free ranged pastured poultry produce and products, Food Bowl Night Market will also feature food operators and wellness organizations, ornamental and herbs producers and the eco-friendly product manufacturers.

The Food Bowl will be launched at the ETON Centris Walk, Quezon Avenue, Quezon City starting March 18. It will open every Friday and Saturday from 4pm to 12mn. ETON Centris Walk is directly under the stop of the Quezon Avenue MRT Station with a commercially accessible area and ample parking for the target institutional buyers.

The World Agape Association, Inc., with the owners of DS Pinoy Organic and Herbal Store organizes the Food Bowl Night Market. The World Agape Association is a group of young professionals whose primary objective is to provide leadership seminars for public servants with focus on public school teachers and farmer leaders. For queries to Food Bowl Night Market, please contact (02) 806-2448
