Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain prides itself in having one of the area’s largest gardens where fresh produce is grown and harvested to be used in the resort’s kitchen. It’s quite an attraction for visiting families to actually see and taste fresh vegetables, reinforcing the resort’s values and the commitment to use fresh, organic and sustainable produce.
Commencing in April, Farmers’ Markets will be held on the resort’s beautiful grounds each Sunday. Executive Chef, Rick Gonzalez, is busy planning the planting season as well as the menus for the restaurants. He coordinates with the landscaping team who has tended the land around the resort for years, to see what is required for a bountiful and continuous harvest. Together with the large variety of produce from the team, local farmers from the nearby areas are encouraged to join the market and display their harvest.
The Farmers’ Market is a wonderful opportunity for guests to learn about the variety of crops from the resort’s vast gardens and the surrounding area. They will also be able to purchase a variety of vegetables, herbs and mushrooms to take home as their little piece of Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain.
The farmer’s will retain all the income earned from the sales, while the resort will support the setting up and showcasing, and sharing information on recycling and in-house composting with visitors and guests.
