The Dahab Community Market was established in March 2011 as a response from the local residents to do something positive for tourism during the revolution. The market has continued every Friday since and features a variety of sellers every week.
It is a perfect chance to meet Dahabians and it has become a popular local social event amongst other activities as much as it is a market. At the Friday Market you find some of the best locally produced foods, crafts, second-hand items and much more.
The market is a keen supporter of local community initiatives like Animal Welfare Dahab and helps to support the local Bedouin community.
Opening Hours: Summer 2-5 pm, Winter 12 am-4 pm on Friday afternoons.
Dahab’s Friday market takes place at Sheikh Salem House in the Eel Garden area of Dahab. It is easy to find, just follow the beach walkway in a north direction towards Assalah. Once you have come to Eel Garden continue for another 2 minutes until the promenade comes to an end. The market is just at the end of the walkway, about 8 minutes walk from the Lighthouse area in Dahab.
The Dahab Community Market is an event that you don’t want to miss if you love fresh homemade food. You’ll find lined-up stalls with a big selection of mouth-watering delicacies. All lovingly prepared by Dahab’s talented hobbyist cooks originating from many countries around the globe. Sweet treats, fresh artisan bread, amazing cakes, cookies, hand-rolled sushi, hand-stuffed mashi, pizza, salads … and so much more.
The Community market is the best place to enjoy lunch together with friends and keep the kitchen clean on Fridays!
The Friday Market is held on the beach with a real street market feel. The number of sellers varies weekly ensuring a great variety of delicious foods and other items for sale.
