Looking for a shop in Qatar where you can buy eco-friendly items, plant-based food and items, local products, and gardening supplies? Torba Store has all of that and more!

Torba Store, a new venture by the beloved Torba Farmers Market's organizers, was launched at the end of August 2020. Community members can visit all year round and shop from local small businesses. We visited Torba Store to show you some of the things you can check out!
