Healthy Buys at the Organic Market
Ever since I covered the Negros Island Organic Farmers Festival in 2014, I have become more exposed and more aware of the great benefits of consuming organic products. Truly, there’s no better way to live this life than to go natural. Although, I cannot fully walk the talk because I am surrounded by the many “instants” in this world and I’m still used to that comfort of having whatever is available in my vicinity.
Good thing ONOPRA is holding an Organic Market at Ayala Malls’ the District North Point in Talisay City. Thanks to the invite by ONOPRA President Ramon “Chin Chin” Uy Jr. I learned about this event. So on a breezy Saturday morning last January 24, I went to the weekend organic market accompanied by my sister.
We were able to buy so many vegetables and food items – from mushrooms to okra to carrots to fresh tomatoes, and so much more. We went home with bags of organic produce that we bought at the Organic Market.
The highlight of our organic shopping spree was the very enlightening Organic Health and Wellness talk by Rapha Valley owner Dr Albert Jo. It opened my eyes to many things and made me more conscious of my food intake.
