Farmers’ Market at Saar Mall

It is difficult for the Bahraini farmers to sell their products in this hot season. Inspired by the concept of Budaiya’s Farmer’s Market, the Saar Mall team, brought the concept of farmers’ market inside the mall for the first timer with the Bahraini vendors.

People can avail the local produce from Farmers’ Market at Saar Mall in an air-conditioned space at a much better price. The event is organized every Saturday from 7am to 1pm until August 31st. They have also made the theme as greenery with the palm trees for this event in line with the nature. The small frogs in small ponds to entertain the kids. There is also a henna stall by Hanaiya Um Aminah.

Farmers are providing produce such as herbs, dates, fruits and vegetables as well as traditional breakfast, Arabic Pacha, Indian Dosa, and snacks on the ground floor of the shopping destination. Ms. Esmahan quoted,” Bahrainis consider breakfast as the most important part of the meal. So we managed to get the best Bahraini breakfast vendors in town. We have got Mawish restaurant from Budaiya, which is popular among the locals. We have vendors like Salemak Bacha who sells delicious Bahraini Pacha, Karma restaurant who makes Indian breakfast items like dosas, falafel shabeer, Aloo Samoosas, Emmawash, Pastel and king fruit for their fresh juices and ice creams from the restaurants side. Every Week we are adding more items by seeing the successful response from the crowd.”

“In our other section, we have the local produce like papayas, dates, Chickoo, fresh figs and loos grown by the Bahraini farmers which is seasonal. Carrefour also participates with their organic produce. We also have plants which people can buy and grow at their garden and home. We have many people from Saudi visiting our farmers market as we are located close by and learn about the Bahrain market.”

Mr. Antony from Agora stated that they sell handmade soaps without chemicals, extra virgin olive oils, organic honey, mustard, protein bars and various dressing all imported from Greece. They supply their products also in Carrefour, Al Osra and Lulu Hypermarkets.

One of the Vendors from the Budaiya market, Mr. Ibrahim sells different varieties of high quality dates, white and red loos, which is popular among the locals and papaya. “I’m very happy and thankful to Saar Mall for providing this opportunity.” Another vendor, Ibrahim sells homemade pickles of different varieties as chili, hot and sweet pickles made by his grandmother. He also sells chilies, limes, grown in Bahrain.

Customers are already praising the market for its perfect balance between amazing food, affordability and staff professionalism. Saar mall looks forward to organize even better next year during this time. People can enjoy their breakfast, buy plants and local fruits, vegetables and dates all under one roof at a low price.
