My Day 3 at the Organics and Millets 2017 National Trade Fair, Bengaluru - Part 1

Here's a Treat for your eyes from Day 3 at the  Organics and Millets 2017 National Trade Fair, Bengaluru.

There are many Really Unique, Interesting and HAPPY things that i covered in this post! So, you better not Miss it! :)

Happy Journey! (Through the Pics of course) ;)

'Zishta' Brand stall was the first one that Attracted Me for Obvious Reasons - They make and sell 'Almost Extinct' Cookware!

My ever favorite Kal chatti (cooking vessel made out of rock). Isn't it reminding of your granny like it did to me? (I posted about them in the Green path's 10 th Anniversary post too. Read it HERE.)

The Old-World Tin vessels. 

Clay Kitchenware.

Varishta and her Partner, the Founders of 'Zishta' at the stall.

A Happy Small-scale Rural Organic Farmer at his Stall. The Reason for his Happiness: Huge number of customers at this stall obviously! <3 :)

Founders of Habicaf, A true south indian Filter Coffee concentrate - Vijai bopanna and his Partner Jayashree at their stall. His smile makes Habicaf look like 'Happy'caf! Right?

This is the First time i ever saw These: Lakshman phal! (top left),   Bread fruit! (bottom left), Wild Jack fruit! (after bread fruit), and Pummelon! (middle). Then there were: Mushroom spawn/dry Pink mushrooms, Organic Green Coffee beans and Tincture plant. Impressive stall this was!

Tiny Rose Onions from Chikballapur dist., which doesn't retail in India because it seems that they Export all of it to Foreign Countries!!! I seriously don't understand Why!!?? All the others in the pic are Native Non-Hybrid Indian Fruits.

Bio-Control Agents used in Seri-culture for Natural Pest control. 

Traditional Free range Eggs.

Various kinds of Millet flakes and unique Moong dal flakes from 'Aurovika'. I bought the Millet Museli and Red rice Chiwda which were both really Tasty!

'Swee10' Stevia Product stall. I got to taste the Fresh Stevia leaf and my was so sweet and tasty that i felt like eating the whole plant! :P They had many flavours of chocolate made using Stevia as the sweetener. 

'Yb' Product stall. Their pencils were made from re-cycled plastic waste and wrapped with discarded News papers. They had Natural Car Deodorant block that seems to Absorb all the Foul Odor from the Interiors of a car without giving you any headache and nausea which the conventional ones usually do.

'Gramya Turnkey' stall displaying all the Eco-friendly Handmade Bags.

'Swachha' is an organisation that Segregates Dry/Wet waste and makes usable Pipes and other products out of it.  

This Lady with a warm smile was selling Copper water bottles and all other home-made herb based products. She was the one from whom i bought the 'Tamarind thokku' at the Green path's 10 th Anniversary celebrations. Read it HERE.

Ever-Chirpy-Happy Ms.Gomathy from Marries malt. Remember i told you about her Oganic 25-Grain/Millet malt?

Clothes dyed with Skin/Eco-Friendly Natural Colours.

Being a Chilli fan, i sooo wanted to see what that King-Chilli was. But, i couldn't find the stall on third day no matter how much i searched! :(

Almost-Natural Aloe vera Soaps for just 5/- INR! It does have a few toxic ingredients though. :/  So, i guess Mysore sandal soaps are a much better budget natural soap option.

Non-Hybrid Native vegetable seeds on sale!

Recyclable packaging on display from the 'Swiss pac' counter. They make them for companies on bulk order. If anybody wants their contact, just mail me. :)

Organic and Millet based Food stalls in the Food court at the event. There were many more but the crowd was too much and i just couldn't swim through it.

Will see ya tomorrow with the 2nd part of  day 3 which wraps the Event coverage.
