Eat healthy with Vegetable Marketing Organization

When you see the label “organic” slapped onto the produce in the supermarket, you can expect an expensive price tag that comes along with it. Well, sigh no more, for we’ve found a service with which you can eat organically without leaving a gaping hole in your wallet.

Buy organic vegetables at wholesale prices through the Vegetable Marketing Organization, a governmental body that encourages sustainable local agriculture. From eggplants (HK$6 each) and water spinach (HK$12/catty) to pumpkins (HK$12.50/catty) and beetroot (HK$15 for four), different organic vegetables are available for sale each week at the Cheung Sha Wan Wholesale Vegetable Market. Far, we know. But you can also place your order by faxing in an order form and, if you spend over Hk$200, your veggies will be delivered right to your doorstep. The Organization mainly assists local farmers in selling their produce to customers, such as hotels, restaurants and supermarkets, and ensures that the vegetables pass through its stringent pesticide residue testing.

Eat your greens, mate.
