Khaleejesque recently attended an event hosted by Market and Platters to introduce their brand to Dubai food enthusiasts. Owned by an Italian family who are passionate about food and have over two generations of experience in the food industry, Market & Platters is a neighborhood deli that offers unique produce sourced from around the world. They sell fresh as well as ready-to-eat options including bagels and sushi and have a large option of exclusive gourmand gift hampers with free home delivery across Dubai.
The products are sourced directly from local vendors and customers are given personalized service including detailed information on origins of the food including the owners, producers, farmers and fishermen. It is the ideal shopping spot for food enthusiasts who prefer to use high quality and gourmet ingredients for cooking at home.
The shopping experience at Market and Platters is like no other, customers are greeted by a fresh seafood counter, that is quite an amazing spread over ice with a large selection of fresh & live seafood including whole cod, turbot and halibut.
There is an antipasti selection boasting homemade olive tapenade, rich cod bacalao spread, generously filled sandwiches, and freshly prepared salads. Next to the antipasti is a mouth-watering selection of artisinal cheeses.
In the centre of the market, there is a wide range of fresh seasonal fruits & vegetables, aromatic herbs, wild mushrooms as well as freshly baked, French bread to the more luxurious and gourmet products such as sustainably sourced caviar, aged balsamic vinegar, peeled black garlic, and risotto rice infused with truffles.
Market and Platters has a quaint and rustic vibe while at the same time maintaining high quality standards and only selling exclusive gourmet ingredients that are difficult to find in the city.
It was a wonderful afternoon filled with food and a chance to meet the 'Xavier Caille – World Oyster Opening Champion' and other local producers who were flown in especially for the event.
