Kids and parents will go wild for the new Farmer’s Brunch at the Ritz-Carlton, Doha featuring an international cuisine with a focus on local and sustainable farming. But the food isn’t the only attraction; a petting zoo with live farm animals, a farmer’s market and an option to purchase locally produced jam and honey products make this a truly unique brunch.

Classes typically run in the afternoon during the week and in the morning on weekends near MIA Park.
