The time is Ripe!
Like so many others in the UAE we're huge fans of Ripe, the wonderful provider of local, seasonal, organic and farm-fresh produce. And nothing says 'hello, the wonderful winter weather is here' quite like an outdoor Ripe Market.
That's why we were so excited to hear that from from Friday 1 November (and every Friday thereafter) there will be a new Ripe community market at Safa Park!
Stalls on offer will cater for everyone, foodies and non-foodies alike, from Ripe’s seasonal, organic produce and locally made cheese and chutneys, cakes, bakes and gluten-free items to lovely gift items from the UAE’s leading artisans. There will also be activities for all ages including yoga classes, cooking workshops and a petting zoo for littlies. The overall market concept is to create a family-friendly environment for the community to browse and buy delicious and nutritious food, to support local farmers and to showcase the great artisanal talent in the UAE.
Sounds wonderful doesn't it?
And Abu Dhabi residents, there's good news for you too - from Monday 17 September (that's tomorrow!), Ripe's fruit and veg market will be back at Jones the Grocer at the Gardens Plaza in Al Raha Gardens. Every Monday 12 -3 pm you will find boxes of fresh, organic fruit and veggies ready for you to purchase outside Jones.
