Municipal market

Municipal market opens in Dubai

The Ramadan Souq municipal market has been launched in Dubai’s historic Bar Dubai neighbourhood in the old municipality building. The launch of the municipal market is timed to coincide with the holy month of Ramadan, which is a few weeks away.

The traditional market attracts both Dubai residents and tourists from around the world every year, offering unique products at affordable prices. The market is open from 10:00am to 10:00pm.

It offers everything you need to prepare for Ramadan, including products for Hag Al Laila celebrations. Visitors can enjoy entertainment shows and activities for children.

According to the lunar calendar published on the website of the Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department (IACAD), the holy month of Ramadan is expected to begin on Tuesday, 12 March. In 2024, Ramadan will fall in winter for the first time in 24 years.

In the United Arab Emirates, non-Muslim residents and tourists are not obliged to fast, but are prohibited from drinking, smoking and eating in public places during fasting hours. It is also forbidden to chew chewing gum, behave aggressively and swear, dance and play music in public (headphones are allowed).

Modest clothing should be worn and it is not recommended to refuse gifts or invitations to iftar. Moreover, in 2024, many iftars will be held outdoors, and guests will be able to eat with a view of the sunset or take suhur under the stars.
