Abu Dhabi vegetable & fruit market

Iranian Souk, Abu Dhabi, UAE

November 2012

From Yas Marina Circuit, our driver took us to the Iranian Souk at the Mina Port Zayed after we did a short stop at Abu Dhabi vegetable & fruit market. As the name implies, you’ll find vegetable and fruits aplenty. They are mostly wholesalers but you’ll still find stalls that sell directly to consumers. You’ll also find plenty of shops that specifically sells only dates.

A 5 minutes drive from the vegetable & fruit market, you’ll reach the Iranian Souk. Here you’ll find almost everything under the sun for your household need. From firewood to pots to lawn chairs. Originally most of the products sold here come from Iran and neighboring countries but many Chinese made products are also available.
