Enjoy farm to table produce at the seasonal Farmers Market in Dubai.
Cooler temperatures in Dubai signifies the return of the quaint Farmers Market at Bay Avenue. Back again this November, this outdoor Friday market is the filled with organic goodness-vendors retailing products ranging from home-grown vegetables and fruits to fresh baked goods, preserves and vegan treats.
Returning for its 10th season, the Farmers Market is the place to pick up organic and fresh produce and directly interact with locally based farmers. We love the idea of being able to choose from a selection of crops picked in the morning and brought straight to the market at Bay Avenue.
A relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere, kids can spend time at a dedicated kids zone or then keep entertained with activities that include, face painting, arts and crafts, caricature drawing, canvas and mask painting and clay art.
We recommend coming at sharp 8 am and start by stopping off at the artisanal bakery to enjoy their market breakfast, freshly cooked on the grill. You can also grab delicious pastries, breads, cakes and preserves all made with organic produce, largely supplied by the local farmers. Once breakfast is out of the way, you can start picking up your fruit and veg.
There are also live cooking demonstrations of dishes made with fresh produce from the market.
A great excuse to wake up early, do come out and support the local farmers and soak in the hustle and bustle. It really will be worth your while!
