Fasting residents of Fujairah and adjacent areas are making the most of the Ramadan Food Market, located opposite Fujairah Corniche, which has become a pre-dusk ritual.


The market has been established for years and consists of kiosks for already established Fujairah based restaurants, shops and so-called ‘Popular Kitchen’ businesses.    


It provides a convenient one-stop destination for residents looking for a variety of meals and snacks to adorn their break-of-fast banquet.   


Aside from the main traditional meals on offer such as a variety of rice dishes, and local traditional meals such as ‘Harees’, by far the most popular items are the fried snacks such as Samousa, Pakoura and Leigimaat.  


The authorities also benefit from the convenience of having all food venders in one location as they are subjected to the supervision by observers from the Municipality of Fujairah, to ensure the application of safety requirements and hygiene procedures. 


Asila Al-Mualla, Head of the Department of Health in Fujairah Municipality, stressed the strict conditions that food vendors have to meet; the most basic of which are valid commercial license permits, as well as the standardization of uniforms for staff, including the wearing the head covering and gloves and food cooking and storage conditions.


Most market visitors are daily regulars who enjoy the atmosphere at the market and which, to many of them, doubles as a meeting point with friends and neighbours.   


Regular customers praised the idea of a one-stop Ramadan food market, which saves consumers the trouble of movement between the restaurants and other food establishments whilst, at the same time, helps to facilitate the supervision of inspectors and observers from the Department of Health in Fujairah Municipality and ensure the safety and cleanliness of the foods that are sold.
