The great outdoors is calling our name…

One of Dubai’s most popular markets, The Ripe Market, will be launching its winter season with an outdoor market from October 16. You’ll find it at Academy Park in Umm Sequim every weekend throughout winter.

Every Friday from 9am to 7pm and every Saturday from 10am to 7pm, The Ripe Market will be showcasing a selection of Dubai’s best retail, food trucks and entertainment until May 1, 2021.

Featuring a huge number of homegrown and local brands, The Ripe Market places a large focus on supporting local SME businesses, in partnership with the Dubai Police.

This season you can expect a dedicate local farmers market, hosting six to eight farmers per week. You’ll be able to find organic, non-organic, hydroponic produce and more, at great affordable prices.
