This month the Samui Green Market is to be hosted by Six Senses Samui at their Farm on the hill. The market will be in the shade of some big trees at the entrance to the hotel.
There’s a goat farm and chickens, a great little garden, and more – it’s a wonderful inspiration for what can be done in a short time with re-used materials and good intentions to reduce, and recycle almost all ’trash’ into something useful!

It’s not hard to find – follow the signs from Big Buddha to Arayaburi and drive past that, and there’s a lot of parking.
As usual, entry is free. We ask our vendors to give us a donation of 10% of their sales, or more if they like – this money goes to cover some material costs, some is donated, and some will be used for future market hardware – tables, signs, umbrellas etc.

As usual – No plastic, no foam. Our vendors get creative with bamboo, banana leaves or buy reusable, or paper!
Shoppers bring their own bags.
As usual – We ask our regular vendors to confirm by August 19 that they are coming – we have to arrange tables and space and we have new vendors interested, but you are first on the list! New vendors can email us or sms to 0818921180.

Different at this August 28 market:
Our theme: Waste to Wealth
How can we use things that are normally considered garbage to generate money?
Times 4-7pm – we will start later and finish later.
Come early to set up by 4pm and you can drive right up to the entrance to drop your goods.
Different location (includes a free sunset)
New vendors
Fun and games
More music ‘made on Samui’ including jazz and Tara Snell, our home-grown diva
Bonus: Free sunset
Free goat manure, free mulch – bring your own bags!!!

A competition: And an exciting challenge to inventors, dreamers, engineers, environmentalists! Come & share your ideas for turning waste into wealth – bring them on 28th August as a photograph, a drawing, a prototype, a working model, a poem! Anyone can join!
There will be prizes!!
Enter the competition! Are you making crackers from left over juice pulp? Are you reusing anything in a creative way? Have you got an idea to change the world? Share your ideas (or your crackers) with us!)

For prizes, we have vouchers from Barracuda Restaurant, Six Senses and more. We will make a basket of plenty with gifts from all our vendors at the market – come and see!

Samui Green Market is usually hosted by Elysia Boutique Resort in Fisherman Village.
Mark your diary for our next market on October 2 at Elysia – we will be at Elysia Boutique Resort, as usual.
Elysia, our generous Samui Green Market host, is helping us build a great vibe on Samui, and is a hub for healthy and delicious food, yoga, salsa and networking. We may do more ‘away’ events in future, but we are grateful for our market home in Fisherman Village.

Samui Green market is a Samui Mala initiative
