Dubai Municipality Launches Ramadan Souq In Bur Dubai; Perfect For Shopping & More

Nestled in the historic enclave of Old Municipality Street in Bur Deira, the Ramadan Souq heralds the advent of the Holy month with enthusiasm and heritage. Set to commence on Saturday, March 9, 2024, this traditional bazaar, orchestrated by Dubai Municipality, holds a special allure for citizens, residents, and globetrotters alike.

A Fusion of Tradition and Trade In Bur Deira Markets

Reflecting the essence of Ramadan, the souq transcends its role as a mere marketplace, embodying a cultural odyssey. Amidst the bustling activity, visitors encounter a plethora of essentials for Ramadan preparations, from customary gadgets to unique offerings for celebrating ‘Hag Al Laila’. With competitive prices and a diverse selection, the souq caters comprehensively to the needs of its patrons.

Preserving Heritage, Fostering Commerce

Dubai Municipality’s dedication to heritage preservation resonates through initiatives like the Ramadan Souq. The municipality pays homage to its past while rejuvenating historical markets and landmarks while fostering economic vitality. The souq serves as a conduit through a medley of entertainment, tourism, and commercial endeavours, illuminating Dubai’s rich cultural mosaic while simultaneously beckoning investment and bolstering local enterprises.

An Engaging Sojourn for All

Operating from 10 am to 10 pm, the souq invites visitors to immerse themselves in its vibrant tapestry. It offers ample time for exploration. Amidst the labyrinth of markets surrounding the area, the Grand Souq, affectionately known as the ‘Al Dhalam Souq’ or Darkness Market, is a testament to diversity. Additionally, patrons can peruse the Plates Market for kitchen essentials. Also, they can traverse the men’s fabrics market and ‘Souq Al Manazer’ for an eclectic array of wares. For those seeking reprieve, the ‘Al-Matarih Market’ presents a selection of armchairs and pillows (tikki).
