Our Wednesday evenings have just improved…

Good coffee, great food trucks, cute market stalls… who doesn’t love Ripe Market? Well the good news is that you now don’t have to wait until the weekend to visit one. Yes, a Ripe Market is launching in Dubai Marina this Wednesday.

Starting this week there will be a Ripe at Le Méridien Mina Seyahi from 2pm to 9pm every Wednesday.

While parking was initially announced as free, unfortunately there’s now a charge – you can park at the Dubai International Marine Club boatyard for Dhs20 for three hours and Dhs50 for three to eight hours. Or you could just catch the Dubai Tram!

What can we expect? Well we know that this is what the setup looks like. Pretty glorious, right?


This Wednesday the animals from Al Tamimi Stables will be there to meet the little folk in your family:


There will be clothes on sale from Sable et Soie:


And jewelry by Ann Sofie:


Oh, and if you fancy a bite to eat, the Buns & Cows burger truck will be there (among other snack options)…


Oh, and of course, the Ripe organic fruit and veggies will be there too…


Remember, the family market at Marina Walk on Friday nights is now up and running again too. You’ll find this one near the Spinneys on Marina Walk from 5pm to 10pm every Friday:


At this weekly Marina market you’ll find arts, crafts and flowers for sale, as well as clowns (not scary ones), popcorn, Mickey Mouse and more.
