Based at the Ceremonial Court in Qatar Foundation’s Education City, the Torba Farmers Market offers lots of fantastic locally-grown produce and homemade artisanal products from aspiring cooks in Qatar.
The word ‘Torba’ is derived from Arabic and literally translates to ‘the pure soil that feeds, nourishes, and nurtures.’
The brainchild of Fatma Al-Khater, the market is a community-based project that aims to encourage the health and wellness sector by providing the public with a range of items – from organically-grown vegetables, to vegan crêpes, sugar-free granolas, organic skin-care, and homemade healthy dog-treats, plus lots more!
In partnership with Qatar Foundation, Torba Farmers Market is set in the Ceremonial Court – a perfect spot with a shaded area and lots of wooden benches for grabbing a cup of freshly-roasted coffee and a sweet, healthy treat from one of the many vendors.
Since opening in November 2017, the market has expanded to offer a small children’s play-area, workshops such as gardening, and live entertainment featuring local musicians.
In this episode of MBG, I head to Torba to see what’s on offer and chat with some of the inspiring people behind-the-scenes of this growing and thriving community-based project.
