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.
