Farmers' Market

As part of Singapore Farm Festival, this weekend the 4th Farmers' Market was held in Kranji Countryside. We reached the place at 5.30pm and it was bustling with people. There were plenty of space to park the car, on the grass by the roadside. Shuttle bus was provided on regular interval too, but it would be difficult to get a cab without calling.

The market boasted stalls selling various local produces, food, marinade sauces and plants. Another area was for farm animals with dairy goats, chickens and frogs in their respective cages. Then another section was dedicated for Sunset Party - rows of tables and chairs, food stalls and also a small stage for live music.

The most interesting stall was Thow Kwang Pottery where we could get our hands dirty in making clay bowls. At $8, we could bring home the bowl. For additional $6 we could get the bowl glazed in the pottery, collection or delivery in a few days' time.

We tried the handmade crispy roast pork, the stall with longest perpetual queue. At $5 a portion, we could choose the condiments. The meat was crispy, juicy and tasty but really oily.

All in all, the Farmers' Market was great, lively and vibrant. The prices were on the steep side but it's to be expected :)
