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 - take 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 the canal being built there, the main event was moved to Zabeel Park in September 2014.
Which is great, as the stands and tables are no longer in the grass, but there is a long paved walkway, 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 locations currently include Uptown Mirdif, Jumeirah Lake Towers as well as Al Majaz Waterfront in Sharjah. During winter, these are usually day events, and from May to October take place in the evenings.
