The Sands’ Little Farmer’s Market

In the age-old tradition of farmers markets, albeit with an Indian Ocean, beachside twist, The Sands plays host each month to Diani’s only farmers market.

Our vibrant Little Farmers Market brings together community members, guests, farmers and small enterprises in support of locally grown, organic produce. We’ve got stalls selling fresh fruit and vegetables, delicious homemade breads, divine cakes and pastries and natural healthcare products, including hibiscus tea and spirulina. There’s a chance to sample what’s on offer before deciding what to buy, although you have been warned that the cakes disappear early on!

Connecting with those who grow the food we eat helps to improve the local economy, preserve natural resources and deepen knowledge and awareness of the importance of sustainable farming. Buying locally saves on wasteful packaging materials and is more environmentally conscious. For the health conscious, it also ensures that foods are fresher and richer in nutrients than they tend to be when transported from far or bought in a shop.

Taste the goodness on offer at our farmers market, held at the Nomad Beach Bar and Restaurant on the first Saturday of every month, from 11am to 1pm.
