The initial push to open up the market reversed the perception on the one hand that it was difficult for customers to access organic produce at affordable prices, and on the other, the concern that independent farmers had difficulty reaching the targeted market. Creating a forum that brings both parties, buyers and sellers together, and also includes local businesses selling health conscious products, is the group’s goal. Another goal is to distribute information about organic and alternative health, food, cleaning and beauty products. However, along the way it also became clear that the market provided another important element for consumers. It creates a community space where people gather each week and celebrate the common goal of healthy living.
Since the inception of the Ubud Organic Market, a number of new members have been included, and in our current form, we offer sellers of organic fruit and vegetables, jams, soy milk and other beverages, healthy snacks, packaged flour and more. staple goods, organic and artisan breads, seeds, health-promoting herbs and tinctures, soap nuts, household cleaning items and beauty products.
Our group successfully functions as a cooperative, with decision-making being shared and tasks being shared among all group members. By cutting out middlemen, our cooperative is also able to keep prices competitive and interact directly with buyers in the community. Our mission is to:
Support local community
Support independent organic farmers
Support small businesses that sell directly to buyers
We produce and distribute natural, homemade, chemical free products, made with love. However, the Indonesian green-organics movement is still gaining momentum and some products that we offer may not be 100% organic or may require plastic packaging to observe proper standards of hygiene and ensure a longer shelf life. Visit our market in person or to find out more about individual businesses in our cooperative, each seller’s product line can be viewed individually on this website.
The market discourages the use of plastic bags, so come with your own bag when you shop, or buy one of our re-useable cloth bags.
See you there!
We would like to give a special thanks to our sponsors Pizza Bagus Ubud for providing the space for us.
