The Farmers’ Market On The Terrace should be more of a Dubai institution than it appears to be. Where else in Dubai can you get gorgeous, affordable, organic AND local produce? *crickets* I thought so. But in all seriousness this really is a place which is worth it to explore. By shopping here you are supporting local farmers, decreasing your carbon footprint and getting amazingly delicious organic produce for a lower price than the imported produce at other Dubai based grocery stores.
The Farmers’ Market On The Terrace is focused on vegetables as opposed to fruit as it is local but the vegetables they do have are flavourful and delicious. I recommend making it a family outing especially as there is enough space for children to run around. Alternatively you can make it an outing with friends and grab a coffee or some baked goods from Baker and Spice (their pastries look lovely).
What do I like most about The Farmers’ Market On The Terrace? I love finding unique vegetables; beautiful purple peppers to yellow cauliflower there is a wide assortment of unique produce for you. Looking for a sweet treat? Pick up some beautiful little yellow cherry tomatoes. They taste amazing!
There are also a couple of stands selling locally made breads, chutneys and other spreads as well as a juicing stand if you need something refreshing. See you there next weekend?
What should you bring with you?
Plenty of small bills and change, reusable produce bags (I got mine at the Organic Foods & Cafe), and a reusable shopping bag.
What have I made using local produce?
