‘When We Eat Downtown Market’ Is Our Favourite Part of Cairo Food Week

As part of the Cairo Food Week festivities Downtown Cairo’s ‘The Factory’ has been transformed into a food market-come-foodie-fantasy.  Brought to life by Flavor Republic and curated by Cairo Cooking, the ‘When We Eat Downtown Market’ is a haven for those looking for a unique day (or night) out brimming with pantry staples, fresh produce, and an array of ready-to-eat foods served up by Egypt’s finest local producers and dining concepts.

Open to the public from Sunday May 12th to Saturday May 18th (6pm to 12am on week nights and 10 am to midnight on the weekend), visitors can purchase day or week-long passes to this fresh, fun and dazzlingly delicious experience from

In the ‘pantry’ visitors can discover an assortment of local artisanal products and organic delectables including honey, olive oil, spices, condiments, dried fruits, deli products, healthy desserts, nut butters, and more.  A tantalizing foodie section features ready-to-eat yumminess served up by some of Cairo’s coolest culinary curators including everything from creamy, decadent scoops of ice cream and sweetly filled feteer to expert brews and freshly squeezed concoctions.

At the ALEXBANK ‘From Earth to You’ booth (the Banking Parter of Downtown District) visitors to the market place can pull up a seat in their inviting undulating booth, treating themselves to an array of wooden kitchenware giveaways cutting boards, tray, aprons, wooden salad forks, and endless refills of gourmet coffee and desserts. As part of their commitment to small businesses, ALEXBANK, together with CFW, has also pledged to support the growth of young chefs, restauranteurs and entrepreneurs seeking to provide world-class products that are 100% Egyptian.

The market will also be hosting a series of precocious pop-up dinners featuring unmissable collaborations between local and international chefs. Tickets for the pop up dinners are also available on
