As a child, I frequented Pearl Marzouk supermarket in Ras Salmiyah often. When I heard Qout Market venue has shifted to Pearl Marzouk residential complex, I was quite excited. Driving into Pearl Marzouk brought back pleasant memories of the place.

Back to Qout Market. If you hadn't visited the Qout market yet, its an open air farmers and artisans market held once or twice a month during pleasant weather from November to March each year. You will find specialty and healthy home made food, organic produce and products, baked goods, traditional confectionary, flowers, art, paintings, personal care items, and a variety of absolutely interesting things.

The open air landscaped compound of Pearl Marzouk complex was the perfect venue for Qout Market. There was a nice seating area in the center surrounded by the different vendor stalls, an arts and crafts area as well a separate play area for children and street food on a separate level easily accessible from the compound. What caught my attention and interest was the black roses, natural local honey that tasted amazing, delicious home made goat cheese with walnut and herbs in olive oil, the mama goat with her adorable kids, and the paintings. You can see them in my photos. 

The next Qout Market will be held on 6 February 2O16, 9 am to 5 pm
