Basta Market: One Step Closer to Your Dream – By Shatha Akeel

Every great business starts small. The largest companies were created with simple beginnings where the ideas started from mere dreams then became plans to generate projects.

Derived from that belief, the idea of creating a social market came to light to show and care for all distinct and small businesses. It’s a place to market their products and exchange entrepreneurial cultures between young people.

The following is a great example:

Basta Market:

Basta Market is a social market in Jeddah that supports small business owners. The market opens every Friday where wooden booths are found. For one day only, the booth can be rented from 5:30 PM to 11:30 PM for a nominal fee, with a training course for the participants in the Basta Market to get certified by the Jeddah Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

Anyone can rent a booth to sell his/her products, and they are available for families and young people of all age groups and social levels both without exceptions.

There are almost 600 traders of young men and women work in order to market their products, which include food, gifts, fashion items, paintings and household accessories; Toys and entertainment are available to meet the children’s needs.

For me, I think Basta Market is a good opportunity for productive families, especially since it is open for two months and a half, which will give families a chance to prepare their products and offer them in the market. February 12th is the big day when this event starts. If for some reason you can’t make it, you’ll have a second chance in Ramadan.
