From Markets to Malls: The Complete Guide to Shopping in Dubai


The Dubai Flea Market is perhaps the most popular market in Dubai among the large international community, taking place in locations around the city, including Zabeel Park, the Ibn Battuta Mall and The Greens, almost every weekend. The strict second-hand-only policy ensures that sellers bring only used goods to the market, with everything anyone could want sold in over 300 stalls, including furniture of all shapes and sizes, fabrics, ceramics, pottery, clothes and antiques. The prices are cheap, and when your feet are tired from wandering through the maze of stalls, there is no shortage of coffee stands, fruit stalls and shawarma trucks to visit.
