Fruit and vegetable market launches online delivery service

Powered by automated translation

Ripe, the UAE organic market that successfully launched in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi last year, has just started a home delivery service (Dubai only, for the time being).

Visit and you can order and pay for a vegetable box online. Depending upon where you live, these will either be delivered to your door on specific days or to a collection point of your choice (Down to Earth Organic shop / Dubai Garden Centre / Al Ain).

According to Ripe's website, a small box (Dh80) will provide enough fresh produce for two adults for the week, while a large one (Dh130) will feed a family of four or five.

The contents of the box vary from week to week, according to the seasons. Because of the weather, the range of ingredients is at a peak at the moment and the boxes should contain items such as: cucumber, French beans, aubergine, kale, beetroot, beef tomatoes, courgette flowers and carrots.

Ripe markets are held weekly in both emirates: for the Abu Dhabi market head to the Desert Garden Centre on a Friday morning, or if you live in Dubai visit the Dubai Garden Centre on a Saturday (9.30am - 1pm).
