Bali Markets That are Growing Organically

Small, But Growing Group of Small Bali Businesses Joining Weekly Farmers' Markets Every Week in Ubud and Sanur.


Two weekly Organic Farmer's Markets held in Ubud and Sanur are providing an important business opportunity for small, independent organic growers and businesses to sell their wares. The two self-managed co-operatives offer a wide range of products.

The Ubud Market takes place every Saturday morning between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. at Pizza Bagus in Pengosekan, Ubud, next to the Panorama Hotel. The Sanur market runs from 4:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. every Thursday at Manik Organik on Jalan Danau Tamblingan.

The stalls at both locations carry a wide range of local produce and home-made products available at attractive prices.

A recent Thursday visit to the Sanur Organic Farmer's Market provided an introduction to the following local vendors:

Bali Runggu - operated by Gede a young man who attended permaculture school in Aceh before converting his family's farm in Baturiti to organic production. Proceeds from that farm and his participation in the weekly markets in Ubud and Sanur support his family, including paying the schooling costs for a younger brother in Tabanan.

Sari Organic - originally conceived as a community project to grow non-chemical rice and vegetables and to teach local Balinese about non-chemical farming, Sari Organic has become something of an Ubud tradition. Neighboring farmers have converted their plots to non-chemical rice growing and, as a result, have increased their incomes. Organic vegetables and herbs grown by Sari Organic are delivered to restaurants and individuals customers in the Ubud area.

Over time, Sari Organic have developed additional food products including tomato sauce, pesto, pickles, tempe, yoghurt, milk and cheese from soybeans.

Juice Ja Café - operated by Suzan and Wayan, this restaurant prides itself on healthy eating. Known for their wheat-grass juice and famous carrot cake, Juice Ja also makes homemade cookies, dried fruit and coconut, salad dressings, jams, and beet cake.

Alem & IDEP - Sayu works full-time in Ubud as well as attending University in Denpasar each weeknight. Sayu, her husband, and their daughter are usually together at every market, traveling by motorcycle between Ubud and Sanur for the weekly markets.

Sayu represents both Alami, a project from her village in West Bali, and the IDEP Bali Permaculture Project. Alami products include cocoa, vanilla, red rice, Borneo honey, Roselle flower tea, vinegar, sea salt and more. At IDEP Sayu is known as the seed saving expert . You can buy IDEP seeds and Permaculture books in Indonesian.

Kue - the Indonesian word for "cake," Kue offers cakes, delicious breads, cookies and pastries.
