Consider bringing a rolling cart or a backpack for easy shopping

Farmers’ markets are often crowded and carrying a lot of bags with heavy ingredients can be tricky. In order to get what you need and navigate the farmers’ market in Dubai like a pro, we recommend you bring a rolling cart. Additionally, you may bring a backpack that will come in handy for carrying heavy products. Remember to go green and use reusable bags instead of plastic ones. You already know how difficult shopping outside can be in sunny Dubai. If you are buying items for your fitness diet that need to be stored in a cold place, bring reusable ice packs. You may keep your meat, fish, or eggs cool as you continue your journey. Moreover, if you wish to grab a quick lunch or a drink after shopping, the ingredients will be fresh until you go back home.

Get your children involved and let them help with picking products

The best thing you can do when shopping for ingredients is to involve your children. It is never too early to teach your children about a healthy lifestyle and including vegan diet recipes. You need to expose your kids to a variety of fresh and healthy veggies and fruits. What is better than bringing them with you and choosing together the best products. Allow them to sample the best food, pick colorful and juicy fruits and play around. You can together sample items you haven’t thought of buying and incorporate them into your diet. This is the perfect opportunity to get them used to those vegetables they keep refusing to eat. Keep in mind, that some vendors may not offer to try samples due to COVID-19 restrictions.
