Food market tour
The much-anticipated new fish market recently opened in Dubai, making it the perfect place to shop for your Eid meals – or simply enjoy the sights and sounds. The venue spans about 100,000 square metres and features hundreds of vendors selling everything you might need, from fresh fruit and vegetables to meat, seafood and catches of the day. Expected to attract more than 500,000 visitors a month, the Waterfront Market replaced the Deira Fish Market, a traditional trading hub that stood on the site for almost 60 years. The sleek and modern attraction, near Hamriya Port, is open during the week from 10am to 10pm for retail, and 9am to 11pm for restaurants. Retailers are open on weekends from 10am to 11pm, and 9am to midnight for all dining establishments.
