We Found Dubai’s Coolest Weekend Market That’s Perfect For Families & Kids

We recently visited a super fun pop-up market in Dubai, and immediately knew that we had to recommend it to you guys. Manbat is a local farmer’s market created in partnership between Arada and the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment. It aims to celebrate and promote the very best of the UAE’s healthy, home-grown produce.

Founded in 2021, Manbat took root with the launch of Manbat farmers’ markets at Aljada, Sharjah. Manbat markets now take place every weekend at multiple venues across Dubai and Sharjah during the cooler months of the growing season.

You get a variety of quality & organic products at great prices at Manbat from pure, unheated, unfiltered and untreated honey such as chestnut, gaff and brown honey to foreign fruits like berries, guava, Japanese oranges and papayas.

There’s also dates, figs, different types of melons, emirati honey, herbs, freshly made luqaimat, healthy chocolate spread & freshly made smoothies.
