On a lawn beneath a gleaming downtown Dubai skyscraper, there’s a surprising scene. Farmers, wearing long, Arab robes stand at tables loaded with fruit, vegetables, honey, spices, sugar and breads.
A real farmers’ market is the last event you expect in Dubai, with its vast modern-built complexes and artificial ‘souks’. You escape to this extraordinary place for blazing sunshine and luxury hotels, not to eat organic, locally grown aubergines. And yet here in the gardens of the Jumeirah Emirates Towers, I am sitting on the grass with my teenage son, eating a slice of cake dripping with date syrup. Ahead of me is a long weekend and a mission: to eat well in Dubai.
