The Ripe Market

New for 2019 and bringing an alfresco vibe to the Jazz Festival this year, the Ripe Market will be joining the line up! Find some unique artisanal products from local SME businesses or chill out under the trees all while listening to the amazing artists on stage.

The Ripe Markets are community events which run across a number of locations in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The goal is to support local businesses by giving them a platform to sell their handcrafted products to residents and tourists visiting. Each week under the lush greenery of both Dubai and Abu Dhabi locations, take your taste buds on a journey of local produce paradise. From seasonal organic fruit and veg, to freshly baked bread, or eat at some of UAE's best loved food concepts, there’s a tasty treat for everyone. But the Market doesn’t stop there, the whole community is involved, with over 100 passionate SME businesses including the best artisans, designers, jewelers, artists and creators in town.

The Ripe Market has recently created a purpose built park in the Dubai Police Academy as their flagship location in the UAE. The Park is open every Friday and Saturday, 9am – 7pm. The Ripe Market also has a presence in Abu Dhabi at the Umm Al Emarat Park, every Saturday, 3pm – 9pm. Along with the two permanent locations, the Ripe Market does a number of annual pop-up markets in partnership with leading events throughout the UAE.
