Dubai is getting a new market for secondhand furniture & white goods
It will be a bargain-hunter’s paradise…
Looking to nab a bargain on a secondhand sofa set or oven? Then you’re in luck as Dubai Municipality has announced it has completed construction on a new market that will be exclusively used for reselling used furniture and white goods.
Located in Nad Al Sheba 3, the 28,000 sqm space will be home to 120 shops and is designed to be a central location that residents and companies can flock to without needing to drive all over the city.
While no firm opening date has yet to be announced, it was revealed that the project will also include an external plaza, food court area as well as close to 800 parking spaces.
HE Hussain Nasser Lootah, director general of Dubai Municipality, said in a statement that the project forms part of a larger effort by the government “to build a green economy and establish an environmentally sustainable city as well as to apply the highest standards of quality and excellence, in order to preserve the environment and society,”

Dubai Flea Market
Held several times a month at various locations throughout the city, the Dubai Flea Market is a great place to pick through and pick up a range of pre-loved items sold by residents of Dubai.
The iconic Deira Fish Market was replaced earlier this year by this state-of-the-art facility near Hamriya Port. It boasts stalls that sell everything from fresh fish, fruit, vegetables and meat.
Dubai Plant Souk
Located just off Al Awir Road in Al Warsan 3, this well-kept Dubai secret is a must for those with a green thumb. You’ll find flora of every type, from local shrubbery to exotic olive trees, and all at a fraction of the price you’ll pay closer to town.
