Ceylon tea, handloom toys, herbal products and Sri Lankan food featured prominently at the two Sri Lanka stalls at United Nations International Bazaar held at the UN Headquarters in New York on 6th June 2019. The items at the two stalls promoted Sri Lanka’s unique culture and heritage among a vast number of visitors representing the 193 member countries of the United Nations. The Sri Lanka stalls were organized by the Permanent Mission of Sri Lanka to the United Nations in New York.
Visitors to the handicrafts stall, particularly young children, were fascinated by the bright colours of the handloom stuffed toys while adult shoppers opted for the world famous Ceylon Tea and herbal soaps. The stall was one of the most popular and colourful stalls at the bazaar. There was also great demand for items such as fish buns, “thala guli”, rolls, cake and Sri Lankan chutneys sold at the food stall.
The bazaar was organized by the UN Delegations’ Spouses Club. All proceeds from the sale of items at the bazaar will be donated by the United Nations for charity.
