Break Your Trip to Fujairah at the Friday Market for Some Bargaining and Hot Corn

If you are driving to the east coast from Sharjah or Dubai then the Friday market at Masafi is an ideal place to stretch your legs.

If you are looking for some pottery, a carpet or some plants you will find Friday Market prices much cheaper than in the big cities. Look at this article for a recent testimony from a Dubai resident.

Check out this article to learn more about the Friday market atmosphere and the art of bartering for a carpet.

The fruit and veges are fresh and you can always ask for a slice of mango before you buy half a dozen.

To stave off your hunger pangs until you get to Fujairah in another 20-30 minutes, buy yourself a cob of hot corn. The corn cobs are irresistible.
