MORE THAN JUST A MARKET

MORE THAN JUST A MARKET

Qout Market came together in 2013 out of the need for a platform to bring together local farmers, craftsmen, and food enthusiasts with the local community to discover, mingle, and plan to run into their neighbor.

It was meant to form a microcosm of all the wonderful people and things that made Kuwait, Kuwait.

Vendors are carefully chosen for their product and passion, but most importantly their character and commitment to this sense of community. Our vendors come from 21 different countries (and counting) bringing wonderful diversity to this carefully cultivated community.

The market normally takes place on Saturdays that fall within the peak growing season of November to April in an urban location.

In our second season, we introduced two other initiatives aimed at empowering the local community. Read more about them here. In season three, the market was held in two locations, the second of which is the iconic historical Kuwaiti landmark called Pearl Marzouq Complex, just a stone's throw from the Scientific Center.

In season four we have the privilege of taking over the Circle of Peace at Kuwait's newest national landmark, Al Shaheed Park located at the center of Kuwait City.

Our market combines local farm produce, artisanal food products, and crafts with a street food section aimed at highlighting the culinary diversity of our local food community. Children have a dedicated section for enriching activities. Then of course, there's the live music!

THE WAY WE SEE IT

THE WAY WE SEE IT

The way we see it? The mere act of coming together is empowering.

OUR VENDORS

We seek to empower the small food producer, the craftsman, the artist, the small-scale farmer, the musician looking for an audience, the up and coming chef and even the established chef looking for a creative outlet. By providing a quality platform and carefully curating the Qout Market vendor family we are challenging the local community to step forward with their best. Small businesses are provided the opportunity to perform at their finest and engage with a captive audience.

OUR VISITORS

A coming together of such wonderful products and producers is a siren song for the curious. We work tirelessly to seek out the unexpected. That way, every interaction with our organization is a journey of discovery and learning. By maintaining standards, we keep visitors hungry and curious. The market has become both a place to spend a sunny Saturday on a journey of discovery and a place to socialize. Our other initiatives seek to nourish and empower this community in ways that complete the market experience. The way we see it, it is a recipe for magic.
