Saffron Souk realised they were running low on a few of those staple items that we had been picking up at our weekly visits to the Saturday morning Ripe Markets, but we didn’t panic. Not us, being the cool, calm and collected bunch that we are at www.saffronsouk.com we jumped in the car and raced down to Ripe’s Farm Shop in Umm Suqeim 2, Dubai – too easy!
Although we were a little early for their daily fruit and vege deliveries, we weren’t too concerned as we were really there to stock up on some of those hard to find non-perishable treats. And, we could always put an order in online for a Ripe Box to be delivered direct to our door (after all thats more ‘Saffron Souk‘ style!).
And just as a side snippet, some of the other Farm Shop visitors can be quite interesting, so expect to go shopping with a bit of light entertainment on the side……
2. Oh my goodness – as predicted we got what we came to get, plus a lot more of what we didn’t need (but knew was good for us!)
3. – 6. Some of those tasty fresh treats we have all come to love and expect from Ripe!
7. – 16. Baker & Spice preserves, truffle oil, Raw Coffee, Camel milk chocolate, fresh dates, non-diary yoghurt, gorgeous cheeses – mmm…. just a few of our favourite things……
17. – 19. Its all happening at Ripe!
