A great little farmer’s market with a big offering

 Last weekend FNND took a trip down to the farmer’s market on the balcony (next to the car park) of the Emirate’s Towers, she left the house wondering as to the potential of this alternate version set up by Baker and Spice.

And what a lovely surprise! There are few things nicer on a weekend that lazily browsing through a market, however small, with an abundance of fresh vegetables, eggs, breads and pastries, delicious coffee straight from Ethiopia’s farms, pure cacao and lucuma (who ever heard of that? it’s a very delicious source of vitamin B) and spiced Yemeni honey. Each vendor had their own story to tell, the founders of the companies were there to tell you about their food, including the owner of Baker and Spice who set up the market. Fat Nancy spent the morning talking food, coffee, herbs and honeys, learning about Ethiopia, farming in the UAE, Yemen and South America. It was great.

Coffee Planet with their range of speciality coffees. The Indonesian was FN's favourite after a tasting of all their speciality coffees from around the world with the lovely Donna from Coffee Planet.

BOON coffee! FN loved these ladies, they had so much to say about coffee, it's origins, their relations with the local Ethiopian farmers and it tasted very good.

The Baker and Spice breads and pastries were just YUMMY. This coffee bread is as good as it looks. Gooey, a bit sour and soft like brioche.

As their website says: Baker & Spice Dubai have set a new standard for ethical delicious food in Dubai.
