About Torba

A Qatar-based initiative, Torba Market is a unique platform. We offer locally grown produce and artisanal goods from Qatar and abroad year-round through our online shop, and seasonally through our Farmers Market.

We aim to be a gateway toward sustainable and healthy living, supporting mindful Qataris and residents on our health and wellness journeys, and building a community of like-minded people who believe in preserving our planet now and for the future.

We are part of a growing community of people who are reconnecting with their food. There is a growing preference for fruit and vegetables that have been grown locally, and in general, food that is minimally processed.

“Torba” is an Arabic word meaning: “The pure soil that feeds, nourishes and nurtures.” We take this inspiration when curating for you the finest local and regional fruit and vegetables.

Online Market (Coming Soon)

Our online shop will be an extension of our seasonal farmers market. We select the best quality fruits and vegetables available in Qatar and deliver to your door. The shop is also a great place for you to discover some of our favourite things, eco-friendly products that we like so much, we just needed to make them available for you.

As we expand, we will be able to offer more and more artisanal food products from our farm kitchen, all organic where possible, as well as hand-selected vegetables from partner farms in Qatar, and fruit direct from our regional growers’ network.

Farm


Torba Farm was founded in the 1900’s and is located in rural Qatar. We use permaculture farming techniques designed to create a sustainable agricultural system. These practices increase the nutrient content of our crops and animal feed, allowing us to maintain the integrity of our soil.

Our water is sourced from ancient aquifers 100 metres below the ground.

All our vegetables are grown using organic principles with the best quality heirloom seeds from New Zealand and USA.

We also pride ourselves on our ability to grow interesting and rare plants, with the farm producing a large variety of Arabic and Western medicinal and therapeutic herbs, which are used in our organic creams and essential oils.

Farmers Market

Established in 2017, Torba Farmers Market is located at the beautiful Ceremonial Court in Education City. Our market is unique in Qatar, with the season running from November through to April. The marketplace itself is a celebration of locally grown produce, homemade cuisine, and artisanal endeavour.
