Naveen Dhatter, chairperson of the BRC entertainment committee, said: “This isn't just an ordinary occasion, the diverse range of cuisines transforms it into something akin to a carnival. Each year, we ensure that we feature top-notch brands selected through an application process. The waiting list grows longer with each passing year, and the response for this year has been exceptionally impressive.”

Manish Rungta, president of BRC, said: “About six years ago, in 2017, the concept for this entire program was conceived, inspired by markets in European cities. Each year, we adopt a different theme, and this year, it is modelled after an English Farmer’s market. The response has been exceptionally positive, and we anticipate a footfall exceeding 2,500 people.”

Sabina Rungta, convenor of the event, said: “I've served as the BRC Farmer's Market convenor for three consecutive years. Each year, our focus is on curating the finest brands. The theme for this year was inspired by English farmer's markets, reminiscent of the renowned Chelsea and Borough markets.”
