Push to put local food on more plates

“Food grown in the UAE is healthier than imported food”, says the founder of Dubai’s first farmer’s market.

According to Yael Meija, the founder of the Baker and Spice market in Souk Al Bahar, “people are prisoners of what supermarkets have to offer them and a lot of money is spent on fresh produce that isn’t actually fresh”.

The market has a policy of selling strictly local produce during the harvesting seasons between November and April. And authorities believe local is the way forward for food security.
