Sharjah Tourism Travel Quiz

Buy the freshest fish, meat and produce in this bustling local souk

Located just off the Sharjah corniche, beside an array of fishing boats in the water, Souq Al Jubail stands as a landmark with domes and pillars that are traditional to Islamic architecture. Fish are hauled in from nearby boats, making the souk the quintessential Sharjah fish market. It also serves as the ultimate fruits and vegetables market, featuring local and freshly imported produce at reasonable prices. Souk Al Jubail is, therefore, one of the most ideal places to visit in Sharjah for grocery shopping. If you’re looking for things to do with kids, put this souq on your list of places to visit with the family. Your kids can spend time in the central atrium, while you cross everything off your grocery list.

Souq Al Jubail is a perfect example of shopping in the UAE culture, with many locals talking to the grocers at each stall to find the best produce at the best price. This makes the souk one of the few Sharjah tourist places for an authentic travel and shopping experience. If you plan your visit for sunrise, you’ll witness an auction of the day’s catch, which starts as early as 6 am.

How to get there

Souq Al Jubail is located between Corniche Road and Sharjah Creek, near the Central Souk, or just across the bridge from Flag Island.
