1st Farmer’s Market

7 Apr, '08

I received an exciting announcement this morning which was the inauguration of a Farmer’s Market in Bahrain for the first time. It is very much hoped that this event will become a regular seasonal market with facilities that will promote local and seasonal produce and will support small scale growers and producers in Bahrain.

The organisers bill this event as:

A great day out for the whole family.

Lots of fresh local produce as well as handicrafts, entertainment for the kids and a tasty Bahraini-style BBQ lunch. It doesn’t get better than this!

Don’t miss out on this fantastic event. Enjoy a chance to reconnect with the land and the produce of the season.

Entrance fees will be charged at BD3 for adults, 1.5 for children but free for those who are under 2 years old.

It’s going to take place on Saturday the 12th of April, 2008, next to Jassim Agriculture (this is the “old” Jassim’s) between 10am through to 5pm.

If you are interested in having a stall for fresh produce or local and hand-made items (such as bakery items, preserves, chutneys or handicrafts) or sponsoring a needy person who produces such items, please fill in the contact form and I shall be happy to forward it to the organisers. Please include your contact details.

It promises to be fresh, fun, local and friendly!

The particulars;

  • 1.5 x 1 meter stalls are rented per day and will contain a table and 2 chairs for BD 60
  • Vendors keep all their sales and profits
  • All proceed from rentals and admission fees will go towards the organizers of this event.
