FLY FOR LESS

Online pre-booking is mandatory.
After a summer inside, Dubai’s favourite community market is back outdoors for another season. From Friday The Ripe Market returns to Academy Park, Umm Suqeim Road in partnership with Dubai Police. With a passion for all things local, Ripe offers you the chance to support UAE SME businesses. Taking place every Friday (9am – 7pm) and every Saturday (10am – 7pm), 16 farmers and growers will be selling their wares alongside artisans purveying everything from organic skincare, handcrafted leather bags, handmade jewellery, unique fashion, art and loads more! There are even pony rides for the little ones, free yoga classes and a supercar show.
OUT FOR BREKKIE?
The capital’s culinary scene has just become a little spicier with the launch of the new breakfast menu at Indian restaurant Zambar Coastal Kitchen at Bawabat Al Sharq Mall. The menu is filled with traditional South Indian comfort food that is certain to get your day started with a zing. It’s open from 10am.
DOUBLE THE FUN
There’s nothing we enjoy more than a decent combo deal and this is one not to miss. Trampoline park Bounce has teamed up with Novo Cinemas and is launching an offer in Dubai and Abu Dhabi for you to double your fun.
