Deira Waterfront Market in Dubai: Fresh Fish, Meat, Fruits & Vegetables

Many of us are familiar with the Deira Fish Market, which has been around for as long as we can remember. Aside from going there to buy fresh fish at great prices, locals and expats also come to mingle, take leisurely walks, and of course – capture interesting photos!

Surely, many of us will miss the old market when it fully closes down by the end of the month. But not to worry, since a new market has taken its place. Situated along Al Khaleej Road is a spacious, modern, and 100,000-square meter facility called Waterfront Market.

Waterfront Market Replaces Old Deira Fish Market

As the name suggests, Waterfront Market is located by the seafront, which will eventually be filled with new restaurants, coffee shops, and retail outlets. Here, you can choose from a wide variety of fresh fish, meat, fruits, and vegetables.

As for the old Deira Market, the fish section has been closed, but the fruit and vegetable sections are still open. By the end of Ramadan, though, we can look forward to buying fresh fish and produce at the new Waterfront Market.
