Msheireb Downtown Doha, one of the smartest and most sustainable fully-built city districts in the world, launched Sunday the seasonal Msheireb Market by Torba, a collaboration between Msheireb Properties and Torba.
Set to host visitors every Saturday from 3 to 9pm along the Sikkat Al Wadi walkway in Msheireb’s retail quarter, the market encompasses a collection of artisans and small businesses that focus on locally produced food, eco-living, and artisanal products that support sustainable lifestyles and community engagement.
The market features around street vendors offering an array of products and items, including local organic vegetables, handmade crafts and jewellery, speciality foods and coffee, health and beauty products and a garden centre.
Msheireb Market by Torba aims to support and empower small businesses and local farms. It acts as a weekly meeting space for the public to directly engage with local businesses in a fun and relaxing ambience.
Prospective market vendors are encouraged to apply online through www.farmersmarket.qa website. All vendors require a commercial registration and must employ sustainability principles in their product or service to be considered for the market.
A privately owned company, Torba has become a leader in locally grown food, artisanal goods and community engagement. Torba provides high quality, eco-friendly products from Qatar through Torba Store, its online shop, and seasonal community markets including Education City Market by Torba and Msheireb Market by Torba.
