FOODIE HAVEN AT BOXPARK
As part of the ongoing Dubai Food Festival, Boxpark is hosting an organic community market in partnership with Organic Guild, a group promoting the growth of organic goods in the UAE, until March 11. Visitors can sample and buy locally sourced organic fruit and vegetables, beauty products, handcrafted jewellery, as well as Fazaa’s natural coffee, created by Shaikh Hamdan Bin Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai. The market will also host workshops teaching children how to grow organic produce at home and the benefits of organic food – in line with Dubai Municipality’s Grow your Food campaign. The workshops take place from 2-10pm on weekdays and 10am-10pm on weekends. Visitors who spend more than Dh200 at any of Boxpark’s dining outlets during the festival will be in with a chance of winning flights and accommodation to the country of the cuisine they dined at.
