Yes, it’s true. Thanks to a government initiative, you can now pick up a range of locally-produced organic vegetables for just Dh1 at the Deira Fish Market
Dubai: If you can brave the stench of the Deira Fish Market, you’re in for a great organic vegetable treat.
“It’s the season for locally-produced vegetables,” said Abu Bakr, a 58-year-old Indian who owns stall No. 10 at the seaside market, popular among weekend shoppers.
“What more can you ask for? Just grab a bundle – parsley, spring onion, coriander, mint or spinach for just Dh1 each.”
Abdullah, a Bangladeshi who runs vegetable stall No. 11, said: “We have more local veggies this time. These are certified organic.”
