Farmers’ Produce, SM Supermall’s highly successful organic market caravan, will be back at SM Aura Premier and The Podium to once again offer fresh local produce.

This is a joint project of SM Supermalls, the Department of Agriculture, and Resto PH (an association of restaurants in the Philippines). The market offers fresh and affordable fruits, vegetables, and various food products such as local rice, bagoong, milk, and honey, as well as delicious takeout meals from restaurants.

If you head to The Podium this weekend, do try the delicious food of Oh My Greek! I love their authentic Greek food!  Also grab some Moloko cookies, especially the white chocolate caramel, the white chocolate lemon, and the mango-passion fruit cookies!

Fresh vegetables

SM Supermalls president Steven Tan said, “We are excited to once again give shoppers access to products fresh from farms from various parts of the Philippines, while helping support local farmers who need all the help they can get amid this pandemic. With our tie-up with Resto PH, mall goers will also have the rare chance to savor dishes prepared by partner restaurants using ingredients sourced directly from the farmers.”

Farmers’ Produce will be at The Podium on the following dates: June 10-12, July 1-3, and July 8-10. This will be in SM Aura Premier on June 18-20, June 25-27, July 16-18, and July 23. Visit www.smsupermalls.com or follow @smsupermalls on social media accounts.
