Wonder whether the mangoes that you buy have been ripened using chemicals or the natural way? Then head to the weekly organic bazaar at West Marredpally, organised by Grameen Mall Foundation, an NGO, on Saturdays. One gets mangoes ripened using conventional methods and sold directly by farmers at affordable prices, claims K. Rajesh Reddy, founder of Grameen Mall Foundation. Visitors can buy Kesar, Dasheri, Benishan, Himayat and Rasalu varieties of mango here.
The bazaar also sells other fruit, vegetables and a variety of rice grown using organic techniques, Mr. Reddy says.
The produce is brought from some villages of Nizamabad district.
