The word “Shandy” comes from the Tamil word “Sandhai” meaning farmer’s market. And that is exactly what happens at The Shandy, located next to MCTM school, Alwarpet. Every day, organic farmers from all over TN and India send their precious produce here to be displayed and sold wholesale (to other organic stores) and retail.
The place hides in plain sight right on the main road. Walking along Luz Church road one evening, I came across this house buzzing with activity, crates of fruit n veggies everywhere. There was no board of any sort so I kept walking thinking it was a storehouse. But then curiosity got the better of me and I headed back and enquired. They said it was an organic fruit and vegetable store.
