Arada launches farmers’ market at Sharjah mixed-use project

SHARJAH, January 19, 2021

Arada, a leading property developer in the UAE, has announced the launch of Manbat, a new farmers’ market at Aljada, its landmark mixed-use project in New Sharjah, in partnership with the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment. 
The market will provide food producers in Sharjah and across the UAE with a unique opportunity to showcase their wares to a wide range of customers as well as retail buyers, thus building up consumer trust in local produce, said a statement from Arada. 
In addition, it will also assist farmers by giving them valuable experience in the marketing and selling of their goods. 
The outdoor market will take place every Friday between 3pm and 8pm, with the first edition taking place this Friday (January 22). 
On the new venture, Chairman Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qasimi said: "Manbat is yet another strong community initiative taking place at Aljada and will be a valuable addition to the Sharjah weekend calendar this year, helping to champion the very best that the emirate - and the UAE - has to offer."
"We are proud to collaborate with the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment to support the UAE’s long-term goals to improve its food security by helping local farmers and food producers. The launch of this weekly market allows families to have a fun and safe day out, as well as giving them access to amazing farm-to-table produce," he stated.
According to him, Manbat’s positioning within the Madar at Aljada complex ensures that all exhibitors and guests can benefit from a safe and socially distanced environment, all set within a superb location that is already one of Sharjah’s most visited destinations. 
"The 30 onsite stalls will feature a wide range of farmers, entrepreneurs, suppliers and F&B outlets, as well as a presence from Spinneys, Manbat’s official Retail Partner. Spinneys personnel will be available for discussions with farmers, as part of the supermarket giant’s programme to support micro food and beverage businesses in the UAE," he explained. 
Families visiting Manbat this Friday will also be able to view a rally of vintage and classic cars, arranged by Sharjah Old Cars Club. The rally will begin at the Sharjah Old Cars Club at 3.30 pm, and will proceed to Aljada afterwards, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
