We're Dreaming of a Green Christmas in Foodie Paradise!

By Stasia Fong 12 November 2013
  After the undeniable success of the first Made in HK Local Artisans Pop Up Market back in August, we're happy to announce it wasn't just a flash in the proverbial pan. With the first round drawing in more than 1,200 people and leaving vendors sold out by 3pm, this organic fair is back, bigger and better, and with a decidedly Christmassy flair. Sponsored by Homegrown Foods and organised by Localiiz's favourite one-woman eco-warrior Green Queen, this event is somewhat of a sustainable Santa, bringing together an array of Hong Kong's best artisan vendors armed with fresh groceries, scrummy prepared foods and stocking fillers with a difference. Spicebox Organics will be keeping out the cold with organic Indian food, while Green Vitamin and Something Fresh may just inspire you to start your New Year's resolutions early with their nutrition and detox solutions and DIY yummy vegetarian and vegan delights. Those hankering after some meaty treats however need look no further than The Butchers Club, which will be serving up a selection of mouthwatering homemade sausages and dry-aged meats. Pair all this with some wonderful local liquid delights from The 8th Estate Winery and you'll feel like Christmas dinner has come early. But what festive foodie fair is complete without a decent dollop of dessert? Treat your tummy with guilt-free non-dairy ice cream from Happy Cow and classic puds like never before from the vegetarian and vegan chefs at The Unbaked Bakery. Once you’ve finished feeding your food baby, make a start on your Christmas shopping by exploring the selection of homemade goods, gifts and organically made products. Get a gift that gives back from Bez & Oho, where all bags and wallets are fashioned out of recycled Hong Kong material, or some gorgeous sustainable bamboo home ware from Bamboa. To top off the Christmas fun, all attendees will stand a chance of winning some exciting prizes in lucky draws and contests.So get ready to sample some wonderful treats, ensure the Christmas tree has a few presents to prevail over, and support local businesses and sustainable shopping.
