Inspired by Berkeley Farmers Market (California, USA) Organic Bazaar was launched by Thanal in 2003 to bring Organic farmes, producers and consumers together for efficient exchange of organic food. It was launched in 2003 as a once in a month - Second Saturday bazaar. Later the frequency of the bazaar was increased. It was made possible through consistent and persistent extension work, capacity building and sensitization done among marginal farmers in different pockets of Kerala for enlarging the supply base. Consumer sensitization and awareness programmes also played an important role in getting more consumers to support Organic Bazaar.
Organic Bazaar functions from C9, A1, VJ Lane, Jawahar Nagar, Kawdiar, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala on all days (including sundays, except national holidays), from 10:00 Am to 7:30 pm.
