Explore Arab culture and creativity in an immersive experience guided by a sense of discovery, while sampling delicious food in an atmosphere that transports you to another time…
Dubai, UAE: Shopaholics, design lovers, and culture vultures rejoice! There’s something truly magical coming to Dubai this month – the first ever Ramadan Market, curated by the creative geniuses at FLTRD and M2L.
Located on the Emirates Jumeirah Tower Plaza Terrace directly opposite the iconic Museum of the Future, this is no ordinary market – it’s a truly immersive and totally fabulous sensory destination offering a unique blend of creative concepts, brands, activities, live entertainment, and yummy food trucks for when the urge for a hot falafel sandwich strikes.
How will you know you’ve arrived? Easy… giant mirrored cubes with water flowing down each side in a dazzling display will welcome you to the market. Your Insta followers will be dying to know where you’re at!
Next, take a journey of discovery through a celebration of the Arab World in “ONE BIG GATHERING,” as meandering paths lead you in different directions to explore a traditional Souk-inspired world of design.
Browse at leisure through a diverse range of products and designer brands, including Ready to Wear (RTW), accessories, home accents, footwear, and art – all while enjoying the exotic scents wafting through the air, traditional music, and the chatter of marketgoers looking for a great find.
The market is divided into several areas categorised by colour, each with its own unique theme. Indian yellow, terracotta, Persian blue, petrol blue, and forest green all come together to create a vibrant atmosphere that celebrates the rich culture of the region.
Looking for that perfect sculpture for your lounge? A ream of luxurious fabric? A vintage carpet? Handmade jewelry that matches your unique style? You’re sure to find it all here.
And at night the market truly begins to sparkle as people gather beneath the moon. Take time to chill in the lounge area and enjoy the festive lights, or grab a fresh Arabic coffee and go for a gentle wander to soak up the ambience…
To finish off a blissful day in style head to dinner in the tower, where you can reflect on the unique cultural experience – and admire your gorgeous buys.
