Every Friday morning Ripe will host their market from 9:00 AM till 2:00 PM at Zaabeel Park (Gate 1). You will find fresh organic fruits, vegetables, local food stalls, mini version of restaurants, crafts, fun activities for the kids, live music and many more! ATM machines are available this year too. The majority of the places have reasonable pricing. There are different types of seating areas and since it is in a park it would be a fun picnic experience. I would recommend you visit the Ripe Market early as it gets VERY crowded and it would be difficult to find a parking spot (We parked in the sand pit across Gate 1!). You should definitely check this place out as it is only for a period of time. There is a clear improvement from last year.

Lemonade (10 DHS each) :
Fresh sour but sweet, the perfect balance of a good lemonade.

Crunchy sweet potato that you just can’t stop nibbling from.

My daily struggle is finding a place that both my sister and I can enjoy. I am addicted to hot chocolate and she is a flat white enthusiast. Whenever a place has good hot chocolate their flat white is “flat” in flavor. If a place serves good flat white their hot chocolate is not up to par. BUT … We finally found a chilled place with both good hot chocolate and flat white ! With a nice view of Jumeira Beach Road, this place offers organic and locally roasted coffee that satisfies the taste buds of different types of coffee lovers. Including homemade desserts such as date truffles, brownie cookies, organic toss bars etc …
