Dubai's new flea market





I've been eagerly waiting to get a first hand experience of the new Dubai Flea Market and I finally made it today!!


It was a carnival of colors with the exhibitors displaying a whole wide range of products. And at great prices too. From clothes to shoes and DVDs to oil paintings. It was absolute fun to walk around the market and bargain for deals. I enjoyed every minute of it. One thing is for sure, I will be there again the next time Dubai Flea Market sets up shop.


The market starts at 9.00 in the morning and winds up by late afternoon. Even if you do not plan to buy anything, I suggest you try out the place. You can laze around on the bean bags (see pic) or listen to the Dubai Lime musicians. If only the place had more F&B facilities :-(

The Dubai Flea Market comes alive every 1st Saturday of the month. It is held at gate no. 5 at Safa Park. For more details click here

Heard that the next one will be held on 1st November so see you there at gate no. 5!!

Subhanallah............I can not wait to tell my husband about this. My husband is a Saudi national and I'm from the US. We vacation alot in Dubai however, when we're in the states he loves going to the flea markets!!!!! I think it's mostly to satisfy the bartaring instinct that he has more than anyhing.........its not the stuff you buy, its the chalange of getting the best price. He won't believe it!!!!!
