ABU DHABI The recently-opened Ripe Food and Craft market at The Collection on St Regis Saadiyat Island Resort has elicited an enthusiastic response from residents with hundreds flocking to buy organic fruit and vegetables.

Held every Saturday, the market also offers handicrafts, jewellery, clothing, handbags, clutches, toys, and even gourmet popcorns, almond tarts, olives and compressed organic juice.

“I am happy that we finally have an open farmers’ market in Abu Dhabi,” mother of three, Selina Ellacot, from the UK told XPRESS. “It was difficult to find organic produce in the local market.” Emirati couple Adel Al Jabri and Safiya said the opening of the Ripe market has spared them the trouble of driving down to Dubai for organic products.
