The Review

  • The Good

    Hosting an organic market in Bay Avenue Park, The Farmers' Market on the Terrace is the perfect way to kick off a healthy weekend. A seasonal event that's great for the whole family, you'll find plenty of grassy areas to laze around on while indulging in some sweet and savoury breakfast snacks.

    The non-profit, community-based initiative is organised by Baker and Spice and brings together around 12 local, fresh-produce vendors to showcase their seasonal offerings; these include The Farm House and Al Shuwaib Organic Farms, to name a few.

    Capturing a real sense of community, we love how The Farmers' Market on the Terrace focuses on supporting the smaller businesses. Cutting out the middleman ensured that we bought quality produce at a better price, and we'll always be fans of that. You can expect to find everything from potatoes and tomatoes to fennel and aubergines.

    Don't know about you but there's something satisfying about seeing vegetables in its raw state, freshly hand-picked from the ground with the roots still attached. The farmers are extremely friendly and are more than happy to talk to customers about their stock.

  • The Bad
    Compared to its counterpart markets like Ripe, The Farmers' Market on the Terrace isn't as large, so don't expect to find any food trucks or arts and crafts stalls.

    Most of the vendors sell similar produce that's all seasonal, so there's a chance you won't always find what you need.
  • The Tips
    The market doesn't have its own website, so you'll need to go to the Baker and Spice site and click 'Farmers' Market'; its Facebook page is more informative. Held every Friday from 8am to 1pm, the market is located nearby a kids' play area and small outdoor gym, so why not make a day of it.

    If you enjoy doing your part for the environment, why not bring your own bag to carry your produce home in. Another option is to purchase a medium-sized jute bag at the market for AED 45. Fan of cooking? Check out the stall by Dubai-based chef, Dima Sharif, who allows you to try all of her pickled produce such as turnip, beetroot and cauliflower.
