Great market with all kinds of fruits but the star of the show are the dates. It is about to be season now so they have different dates at different stages which is very cool. You can see them and many vendors let you taste them for free and even give you arabic coffee to go along with it. If you speak Hindi or Malialum (probably spelling it wrong) you are going to be able to haggle and get an even better price. If you dont speak it dont worry because there are great vendors who will still give you great prices. I got a KG of dates for 20 dirham when it was marked for 30 dirham and the vendor was very pleasant and basically let me eat tons of dates for free which was an experience on its own.

This date market consists of multiple enclosed, cooled shops that display numerous types of the 120 varieties of dates available in Abu Dhabi. The proprietors are generous in offering samples. They offer more products made with dates than I could count and would offer vegans a delightful shopping opportunity. Other products are available, including a variety of loose nuts. Worth a visit.

Fun visit to this market which also includes other foods and vegetables. I would say that the pricing and type of dates are the same in all shops except one. Some shops had older dates that were not good quality. There is a Zadina shop off by itself which is much higher priced but has the best quality stuffed and chocolate dates. If you want something unusual that you can’t get at Global village or the supermarket then go for Zadina.

We had the good fortune to visit a store in the dates market. Here they had all kinds of dates, apricots, figs, nuts, chocolate and candy.

My wife and I weren't planning on buying any dates, we just wanted to see this famous marketplace where the date vendors are all gathered together.

A young man (wearing plastic hygiene gloves) offered my wife and I two different kinds of dried dates and a fresh date. We weren't even going to try them, but he was pleasant - not insistent- so we tried them. They were so much better than the dates we get back home in Canadian stores!

We will be in Dubai for another few months so we bought some to consume in our apartment. I highly recommend this as a stop in Abu Dhabi.

The traditional date market was on our guided tour program, so we visited. I don't even like dates, and our expectations were low. However, we enjoyed the visit and even bought some dates, and some traditional middle eastern sweets (baklava and similar things) which were mostly imported from neighboring countries. The dates (from Saudi Arabia) were delicious.

We spend about an hour here looking along some the shops with their dates and other products. A great way to buy dates. We only tend to have 2 varieties in our local Waitrose. Think we must have tried about 10 different ones before deciding what to buy. (Try date jam too - it's a new favourite for me on toast or pancakes).

Best if you purchase your dates here - not at the malls. Samples of all kinds. Few tourist. The dates are fresh, some covered in chocolate (always good), stuffed with nuts or fruit. Don't go home without some of these dates!

We made a brief stop over on our way to the Palace. The traders and very nice and gave us lots of different types of dates and chocolates as tasters even before we bought the dates. We ate to our fill and bought the dark and light chocolate dates with almonds. We were also given pistachios to eat along the way. Yuuuuuummmmy!
