Comments Off on the ripe market: the best place to spend your saturdays in dubai

The Ripe Markets are a place to come together to share a love of fresh, seasonal, organic, local and handmade produce. Ripe provides organic fruit and vegetables, superfoods, local raw honey and eggs, gluten free items and other goods at weekly markets across a number of locations in Dubai (as well as Abu Dhabi).

This market gives you the opportunity to swap the supermarket for the Ripe stall and shop alfresco for delicious organic groceries. Ripe offers everything from kale and cucumbers to their unbelievably tasty cherry tomatoes as well as a range of fruits including mango, papaya and clementines, with everything coming from organic certified farms.

Join the fun in the sun every Friday at the Ripe Market Zabeel Park from 9am to 3pm, or every Saturday at Ripe Market Al Barsha Pond Park from 3pm to 9pm. During the holy month of Ramadaan, the market is moved indoors for the summer edition of the Ripe Market at Times Square Center, so you can continue to enjoy the community market experience without the heat.

If you can’t be bothered to attend the Ripe Market, buy your organic fruit and vegetables from the Ripe Organic Shop in Dubai or place an order for next day home delivery. To Shop a few of our favorite Ripe organic fruit, veggies and pantry goods follow the link here.

The Ripe Market is the perfect place to spend a relaxed day in Dubai; shopping, soaking up the community atmosphere, having lunch with friends and family, and if you have any little ones, letting them indulge in hands on activities such as the petting zoo, handcrafts and more. Below are a handful of our favorite vendors.
