In this episode, Fatima Haseen Khan, the owner and operator of Fatima’s Indian Food, and her employee Chad Coombs talk about incorporating local ingredients into their dishes, moving to the new Market location, and the sense of community they have with customers. You can find Fatima's Indian Food at the St. John's Farmer's Market every Wednesday and Saturday, or on Facebook and Instagram.
Originally from India, Fatima has been living in St. John’s with her family since 1990 and has been involved with the St. John’s Farmer’s Market since 2008. She loves to meet new people and learn about their values and culture. She always tries to introduce new dishes, and uses produce from local farmers as much as she can. Fatima believes her small Indian food outlet has made a substantial contribution to the diversity of multicultural foods of St. John's. Fatima also volunteers with a number of organizations, including the Muslim Association of Newfoundland and Labrador and the Multicultural Women’s Organization of Newfoundland and Labrador.
This episode is part of a series showcasing the people and stories of the St. John’s Farmer’s Market, from farmers, to craft and food vendors, and more.
