Have plans for Saturday yet?  Here’s something you can do.

We are super excited about RIPE Food and Craft Market which opens for the season this Saturday in Abu Dhabi.  The market will take place The Collection at St. Regis.  It is a beautiful outdoor venue to have a browse for fresh, organic vegetables, food, and other goodies.  I have heard that there will be a lot of great vendors attending so you could find the perfect unique gift for yourself or someone special.

about02If you have never been down to The Collection before, this would be the perfect exploring opportunity for you and your family.  There are several different venues, which include one of my favourites, Shakespeare and Co.  You can do a little shopping at the RIPE market and perhaps stick around for lunch or a coffee. There is a Spinney’s there, so it’s perfect if you need to pick up some bits before heading home.  Beautiful weather and a luxurious location make this for a great outing.

To get there, head to the St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort.  Once you enter the resort, do not drive all the way up to the hotel. Follow the signs Spinneys parking.  Inside the parking you will follow the signs for the Collection.  Once upstairs, just head outdoors and have fun shopping.
