Organic Spotlight Ja: Ujima Farmers Market

ujima

As knowledge about how pesticides, herbicides and antibiotics in the food we consume negatively affect us, more people are seeking to eat organic.

Jamaica is making moves towards more organically produced food and natural products.

We’re taking a look at some of the places and producers that are making natural more accessible on the island. This time we’re putting the spotlight on the Ujima Natural Farmers’ Market in Kingston.

The Market is held on Saturdays at 22 Barbican Road from 10 am to 3 pm.

Ujima brings together farmers who provide natural, non-GMO produce, grown or made without the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilisers.

Along with organically grown produce, at Ujima there are also artisans and crafters selling products made with natural ingredients.

From fruits and vegetables, herbs and spices to goat’s milk, naturally dyed fabrics, artwork, and raw vegan meals, there are many unique things to be found at Ujima.

Ujima Natural Farmers’ Market is an extension of Source Farm’s ‘One One Coco Project.’ Farmers enrolled in the programme are taught how to apply organic methods on their own fields.
