After its success last year, Dubai Festival City has announced the second season of the Organic Souk will start on Saturday, November 10.
Marsa Plaza Creek will once again be the venue for the destination’s dedicated farmer’s market which is being held in association with the Farm House, Dubai, and will run every Saturday until April 2019 from 3pm to 10pm.
Visitors to the Organic Souk will have the chance to buy delicious farm-fresh goods directly from the people that grow them and also spend a fun-filled day at the Creek-side location. The event, which has grown compared to last year, will see over 25 local farmers selling their freshest organic produce, daily picked and ready for purchase with no middlemen involved. Some of the big farms that will be participating this year include BTC Farm, Organic Land in Dubai, Rashed Farm, Emirates Bio Farm in Al Ain, IGR Farm in Abu Dhabi and Modern Organic Farm in Sharjah and more.
There will also be an open seating area and a garden, where visitors can enjoy delicacies from various street food serving Emirati, Arabic, American, Indian and Pakistani food. In addition, there are plenty of activities to keep the little ones entertained as the Organic Souk will feature a mini petting zoo with a variety of farm animals including ducks, chickens, rabbits and more.
Samer Zabian, Director – Residential & Commercial Property at Al-Futtaim Group Real Estate, said, “As a true lifestyle destination, Dubai Festival City has been actively encouraging UAE residents and tourists to embrace a healthy way of life. The Organic Souk with its wide range of fresh produce that is hand-picked in the morning offers the best seasonal fruits and vegetables from the people who grow them. Families can also enjoy a relaxed and fun day at Marsa Plaza Creek as the venue has plenty of activities for young and old alike.”
