/ Farmers Market tour & Clay-Pot Cooking Class
Farmers` market tour & Clay-pot Cooking Class is about Traditional farmers’ market runs into hundreds of years of history in Sri Lanka. All farmers in the community come to a certain public place and sell whatever the crops they have grown, in order to collect some money to buy their other daily needs. It is a very interesting concept which does not involve any middlemen and give the benefits back to the community itself. However, with the economic constraints and busy lifestyles this concept has superseded and remains only in certain parts of the world. Sri Lanka is a great place to experience Traditional farmers’ market and Colombo, however much urbanized, it still provides space for farmers in the suburbs to come and sell their own crops.
