A collection of Beijing-based organic farmers and food-aware citizens will gather for a second discussion focusing on distribution networks of organic produce throughout the city. Pangbianr will be in the mix offering seasonal sweet potato falafel from our recipe zine along with some cartographic input.

Organizer Emi Uemura explains:


Country Fair is an ongoing educational event of food and urban agriculture. It contains 2 parts: farmers market and series of small projects, lectures and workshops. Farmers market is developed out of necessity in direct communication and exchange between the natural / organic farmers and consumers in Beijing. Still there is a big gap between the farmers and consumers; some producers have excess organic products while some consumers do not know where and how to start a natural way of eating. Country Fair as a platform, farmers and consumers create networks and most importantly sharing experience inside the city. This is the beginning to gain awareness of our eating habit, our choices and actions as responsible urban consumers, also we believe this will benefit and encourage local farmers for their future practice. As educational purpose of this event, we organize small talks, presentation, performance and workshop.


This time Country Fair is based in Studio-X (Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation) to collaborate with the idea of farming and awareness of urban space, focusing on how local food comes into the city. In this meeting, we will develop a map of deliveries to better understand routes, possible overlapping zones and environmental concerns, and simply to see how food is distributed.


Country Fair has been developed through the project Mobile Garden by Emi Uemura and Vitamin Creative Space in Beijing.”
