Friends of the Earth Malta and Eco Market Malta have joined forces and are organising 2-day market and celebration focusing on everything good for people and planet. This October we will be putting the spotlight on the thousands of local farmers who work hard every single day to produce wonderful, healthy, refreshing food for our plates. Expect to find therefore stalls with local fresh organic produce, natural food and snacks as well as food trucks with the most genuine and mouthwatering food.
This two day event will also host Info Booths, awareness talks and educative workshops all linked to good food, sustainable living and positive agricultural practices. There will be live music, entertainment, and fun activities for kids and adults. Everything is aimed towards raising awareness and safeguarding our precious environment. More details about activities will be out in the coming days.
