Long before Dubai became one of the wealthiest cities in the world thanks to the area’s abundant fossil fuels, the Middle East possessed a considerable amount of prowess in the regards to maritime matters. Pearl-diving for instance was a practice certain inhabitants of the United Arab Emirates excelled in, and it is the same when it comes to fishing. The Deira Fish market, located at the heart of Dubai, is a great place to experience the incredible prowess the nation still holds in regards to acquiring all kinds of seafood. Taking a visit to this incredible place is one of the most unique things to do in Deira Dubai.
Within the market you will easily find a wide range of people, from everyday folk to chefs of luxury hotels such as the AVANI Deira Dubai Hotel. If you are inexperienced with the concept of a Dubai marketplace, it can look quite overwhelming upon first glance. At any given time the Deira Fish Market is almost guaranteed to be packed to a great extent with crowds of people looking to purchase fresh seafood, so there’s bound to be some hustle and bustle involved.
Certain kinds of fish available at the Deira Fish Market could either intrigue or shock you since some fairly rare fish are featured here for consumption, such as baby sharks for instance, whose meat is considered a delicacy. One can also easily find caviar available at this market, especially an Arabian brand by the name of ‘Yasa’. It’s due to the availability of these fairly exclusive items that contributes to the fish market attracting a wide range of customers.
If you’re ever in Dubai, this is definitely a unique experience to be had, and one of the best places to procure all the necessary items for sustenance since there is a vegetable market and meat shop located adjacent to the Deira Fish market too.
