At the Dubai fleamarket you can buy and sell everything used, from holiday souvenirs to handcrafts, second hand household items and clothes, baby products, books, clothes, and much more…
It is almost
impossible to visit the fleamarket without finding at least one
treasure to take home! Truly in accordance with their motto:
"One man's trash is another man's treasure"
Launched in spring 2008, this second hand market has quickly evolved into a colorful monthly meeting point for the various nationalities living in the country. It serves people who are leaving the country, just arrived, or those who are simply looking for bargains.
And if you ever wanted to clean up your house and don't know what to do with all this stuff - try taking a stand to get rid of just about anything. Plus it is really an experience not to be missed! Be ready for a busy morning of haggling around.
This bazaar originally started in Safa Park, but due to recent constructions going on there, the main event has now moved to Zabeel Park (starting from September 2014).
Which is great, as the stands and tables will no longer be in the grass, but there is a long paved walkway with lanterns, ensuring a brighter and cleaner market. The walkway is completely shaded by palm trees, so even during daytime, you don't have to be in the sun.
Next to Gate 1 there is a huge playground to keep your children entertained while you look for bargains.
Other outdoor locations during the winter season will include Uptown Mirdif, Ibn
Batutta Mall, and also Jumeirah Lake Towers as a new addition, plus the organizers are looking for a good venue to add another event in Sharjah.
