Torba Market is a celebration of locally grown produce, homemade cuisine, and artisanal endeavour.
It is a place where the community gathers to learn, to shop and be empowered as a vendor and a consumer. Our focus is to nourish and nurture our environment and ourselves, with an emphasis on sustainability and ethical business practice.
Established in 2017, Torba Market is located at the beautiful Ceremonial Court in Education City. Our market is unique in Qatar, with the season running from November through to April.
Sustainable and Local
We are big fans of conscious eating and recognise the importance of sustainability and buying direct from local farms and the artisans themselves.
Through our platform we are getting back to our roots, reconnecting with our food, supporting the increasing preference for fruit and vegetables that have been locally grown, for food that is less processed and encourages a more sustainable Qatar and planet earth.
Market vendors are mainly small business owners who don’t have their own shops to sell their products, which are usually handmade, organic, locally produced and have some element of sustainability in their creation.
The market itself is the first in Qatar to ban single-use plastic bags, plastic straws, plastic containers and plastic cutlery.
This year, due to Covid-19 restrictions, the market has been reduced in size.
