It was a timely opportunity near the Lunar New Year period, for the public to learn more about and buy local produce. Fresh produce such as eggs, fish, vegetables, and mushrooms from 26 farmers were available.
Highlights of the event included stage programmes and cooking demonstrations hosted by Mediacorp radio deejays. Visitors were treated to samples of three Lunar New Year dishes, as well as two dishes using fish supplied by The Fish Farmer, a participating farmer at the event. Senior Minister of State for National Development & Trade and Industry Dr Koh Poh Koon also came to show his support for local farmers.
SAFEF founding member and participating farmer at the event, Mr Frank Tan from Marine Life Aquaculture, was delighted that the threadfin fishes he harvested for the event were sold out quickly. Another participant, Ms Shirleen He from VertiVegies, also said that her team enjoyed engaging with members of the public, who were receptive of local produce and hydroponics.
