Since opening its doors to the public in June earlier this year, the Waterfront Market has proven popular with residents shopping for fresh food.
Located at the intersection of Al Khaleej Road and Abu Hail Street on the Deira Corniche overlooking the Deira Islands, the Waterfront Market has dedicated sections including fish and seafood, fruit and vegetables, meat and poultry, and dry goods including spices, nuts, and honey all under one roof.
The 120,000sqm facility is designed to ensure quality, freshness, value for money and convenience for retailers and consumers alike.
Waterfront Market Mall director Mohamed Khamis Maktoom Al-Shehhi said: “When we look at fresh food, quality is critical. There is no question as to the importance of freshness. It provides nutrition and goodness to the body – from taste to health benefits, not to mention the benefit of reducing the carbon footprint associated with packaging and food processing.”
In addition to the fresh food markets, the Waterfront Market hosts more than 50 retail outlets. Retailers include a pharmacy, money exchange and transfer, oud shop, flower shop as well as a variety of food and beverage outlets from tea and coffee shops to casual and family dining options located on the promenade facing the sea.
“We are confident that the Waterfront Market’s unique proposition will continue to attract food explorers and healthy eaters. Shopping here is an experience residents and visitors from all walks of life will find relevant and inspiring,” concluded Mohamed.
The Waterfront Market is a modern purpose-built facility development led by Ithra Dubai as part of its efforts to preserve Deira’s legacy in fresh food trading.
