Ready for Ripe?

Posted on September 13, 2011


There are few things that excite me more than seeing brilliant ideas come to life … and now, just a few days before Ripe’s first food market in Dubai, my excitement is starting to bubble beyond belief. Our hard work over the summer is soon to be realised!

Yet to hear the hype for Ripe?

Read on and pop along on Saturday.  Despite being a wordsmith, I can’t begin to convey the tantalising sweet taste of a Ripe tomato or the sheer treat for the senses that only Ripe’s basil or lemongrass can bring. It’s like a party on your tongue and everyone’s invited …

  • Starting this Saturday, and thereafter every Saturday, Ripe will be running a fabulous Food Market at Dubai Garden Centre from 9.30am – 1pm
  • In addition to local, seasonal, organic, fresh and utterly delicious produce from Ripe, there will be tons of other tasty treats to tickle your tastebuds including oils, chutneys, jams, dips and breads
  • We’ve even got Wheatgrass shots planned as well as Biltong … is there any better protein for runners?!
  • You can tuck into the BBQ sausage sizzle and a gorgeous organic coffee from Raw … and if the tummy continues to rumble, the Dubai Garden Centre café does more-ish brekkies, lunches and snacks
  • And if bringing the kids, they can feed the fish whilst the grown-ups entertain themselves

Food markets like this are a firm fixture back in the UK … and now, for the first time, they’re soon to become a fixture here. You just can’t beat buying fresh and local from fellow foodies whose passion for produce shows no end.
