New Delivery Service

The hunt for fresh, delectable produce just got a bit easier with the convenient new Bangkok Green Market delivery service. This farmer-friendly initiative aims to further bridge the gap between Thailand’s talented agriculturalists and regular, everyday customers. With a passion for the highest quality produce, Bangkok Green Market offers a multitude of different options for your fruit and vegetable needs; from 75 different organic goods, to GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) products. To ensure a seamless shopping experience, their website offers total flexibility when choosing your items, without the need for a standardised box size (FYI: they only use biodegradable packing material). You can also trace products back to their farmers to find out more about cultivation processes. www.bangkokgreenmarket.com

New Art Gallery

Celebrated British DJ and drum and bass pioneer Goldie is all set to open his contemporary art gallery in Charoenkrung’s Warehouse 30 this month. Appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in 2016 for his services to music and young people, it’s no surprise that Goldie has brought together some of the world’s leading graffiti and contemporary artists for the establishment of Aurum Gallery. Notable names include Vhils, best known for his oversized portraits, carved directly into walls; Saturno, renowned for his vivid murals that combine fantasy and realism with impressive effect; and Belin, who rose to fame thanks to his unique urban postneocubism-style. In addition to international talent, several Thailand-based artists, like Wal Chirachaisakul and Benzilla, will also be exhibiting. www.aurum.gallery

New Activewear Line

Shaza by Shalini is a local activewear brand that’s both stylish and environmentally conscious.
