Fresh organic local produce from across the country are brought to the centenary farmer’s market in Thimphu every weekend and the residents of Thimphu ration and schedule their weekly grocery shopping over the weekend. The foot traffic at the weekend market peaks at around noon till the late afternoon. The farmer’s market has shopkeepers of all ages from young students pitching in to help their parents to old farmers who take great pride in their produce. The availability of seasonal vegetables and prized mushrooms break the monotonous consumption of regular produce available in the market. The centenary farmer’s market forms a symbiotic relationship between the farmers and the middle working class population. Farmers are rewarded for their hard work and the resident shoppers are blessed with variety of nutritious organic produce.
