BMMI and Alosra supermarket supported the 338² Food Festival event over the past two weekends, where the team promoted its ‘Think Local’ initiative by inviting partnered local farmers to display and sell their vegetables. Under the umbrella of Bahrain’s Annual Food Festival, the Farmer’s Market was activated on the 28th of February.
In line with the event, Al Riwaq Art Space transformed Adliya with live music, culinary competitions, and unique pop-up dining opportunities.
Alosra gave guests a delicious taste of local flavours with a special ‘Pumpin’ Kale’ salad curated by our very own Food Specialist, Sara Babar. Additionally, ‘Think Local’ flyers and recipes were also distributed to visitors.
Alosra has long championed to support local farmers and producers in Bahrain, empowering them to become more engaged and active in their communities under the ‘Think Local’ initiative. Almost 15% of Alosra’s produce supply is now grown locally, ensuring a mutually beneficial partnership between the store and local producers.
A special thank you to our Produce Specialist extraordinaire Patinhare Rajan and a shout out to all of those involved: Ahmed Habib, Habib Mansoor, Ali Sawar, Yaseen, Mohammed Abdulameer, Sara Babar, Pavlos Manousos Babiolakis, Danya Alalaiwat, Noor Yar, Yasmin Hussain and Reem AlTajer.
The event was a great day out for the team and a fantastic opportunity to promote Alosra’s commitment to all things local! Don’t worry you can still come down this weekend to celebrate the diversity of the local food community that have found homes in Adliya.
