It’s an unmissable day out for all the family…

It’s one of Dubai’s best-loved alfresco events, and after several months of trading indoors over summer, The Ripe Market is set to head back outside from Friday, October 25.

The Ripe Market will run every Friday from 9am to 7pm and every Saturday from 1pm to 8pm, inside the Dubai Police Academy off Umm Sequim Street.

But over summer there have also been some new additions made to the Academy Park, including a new dedicated dog park, Unleashed. The dog park will open seven days a week, alongside a new sports academy and no less than six cafes.

Unleashed will open daily from 7am to 9pm until May 31, however there will be fees to use it. Daily rates are priced at Dhs50 per dog, monthly rates are Dhs375 – or you can have unlimited access all season for Dhs1750 if you book before September 30.

On the weekends, The Ripe Market will come alive with an array of stalls offering market goers everything from organic fruit and vegetables and freshly baked breads, to stalls that are bursting with colourful clothes, cute beach cover ups, eclectic handmade jewellery, handpainted artwork, crafts and more.

When it comes to entertainment, The Ripe Market have got the whole family covered with yoga classes, kids’ activities, a petting zoo, horse riding, workshops and live music to get involved in.

We can’t wait!
