You either love local produce markets or hate them! I love the hustle, bustle and colours. I met interesting locals and almost everyone is happy to pose for the camera. Its a photographers heaven... Like any market I would suggest you don't go if you have a weak stomach.I went in the evening and would suggest going early in the morning or later like I did when its a little cooler. Its a very short walk from Palm Deira Metro station on the green line and close to the gold souk and the spice souk.

The smallest shrimp at this market pales all shrimp ever found anywhere in the US. You could actually cut shrimp steaks for dinner here. I'm talking species never even known to be existent.

I have visited Dubai a number of times, but never made it to the Deira fish market until now.
The fish market is located very close to the Gold souk. Huge parking, and taxi drivers knows this place by heart.

The place is not for those who cannot stand the smell of fish, but if you are like me, a crazy seafood lover, then you certainly cannot miss a visit to the Fish market.

The place is packed with all sorts of seafood product ranging from different species of fish, clams, lobster, rays, sharks to crabs. The prices are affordable. The seafood are fresh.

It is a definite must to visit this place when in Dubai.

This place is a must visit for seafood lovers. It is located bang opposite the gold souk, alongwith the fresh fruits and vegetable markets.
Although the market is pretty big, it is very clean and the typical fishy smell is not present. All the merchants are neatly dressed, their wares neatly stacked on top of each other. There are lots of varieties of fish, shrimps, lobsters and the like. if you are nice, they even let you take photos. Dried fish and shrimps are also available.
If you like it, there is a place right next to the souk, where they will clean what you buy for a small price and if you are in too much of a hurry to devour what you have brought, there are 2 restaurants about 50 mtrs ahead, where they cook what you have bought for about 8 or 10 dhs.

Nice place to visit.
