There’s only one place in Dubai where you’ll find everything from quirky home accessories and cute additions to your kiddos wardrobes to handmade beach totes and pretty paper goods in a fishing harbour location with a view of the sparkling sea (plus a handful of little cafes and eateries that just lend themselves to this balmy weather). The Marina Souq is a pop-up market at the Fishing Harbour Umm Suqeim 2, showcasing over 30 of Dubai’s very best locally created brands. The next edition is this Wednesday, March 11th – mark it in your diaries mamas and wallets at the ready. Here are a few of our Marina Souq faves…

2 birds

Royal Blue Chevron Halter Dress By 2 Birds
Chevron nail art might be the latest thing but frankly we’d rather go for something a little longer lasting. A dress that looks as good on the beach as it does at brunch? Yes please.

baker and spiceArtisan Breads, Organic Veggies And Other Yummies By Baker & Spice
These guys need no introduction – but this will be their debut appearance at the Marina Souq (their homemade pastries are too good to miss).

fairy lightsFairy Lights By BirdsnBees
Who said fairy lights were only for Christmas? Create an ambient glow in your dining room or give your little ones rooms a  touch of magic – we’re more than mildly obsessed with these beautiful strings of fairy lights – available in all sorts of colours – we can’t get enough.

cahootsUAE Memory Game By Cahoots
The perfect gift for anyone living in this wonderful city we call home.

jules and juliette

Children’s Pyjamas By Jules & Juliette
Beautiful crisp cotton or linen nightwear for your precious little people. Perfect for bedtime cuddles.

toteBeach Totes By Keen Bags
Made in Dubai these fab bags combine traditional Arabic style with French flair and design – a little playful, a lot colourful and perfect for picnics or beach adventures.

espadrillesGold Espadrilles By La Plage
Um hello you gorgeously gold uber stylish casual flats, where have you been all our lives?! WE LOVE!

candlesCandles By Pure Candles
Locally made eco-friendly soy wax candles in a range of sensational scents – good for Mother Earth and for your living room too. Oooh and be sure to check out the reed diffusers…heavenly.


Cushion Covers By Shenouk
Beautiful block printed (in Jaipur) cushions (and a whole heap of other stuff we are seriously coveting) that are just perfect for a Spring refresh.

joinery shopCustom Made Signs By The Joinery Shop
Want to jazz up your walls a little? The Joinery Shop can create any type of rustic accessories featuring cute little phrases (or your own words).

sandalsSandals By Twins
For when high heels just aren’t called for and flip flops are way too casual, a pair of twins sandals will become the go-to you can’t be without (and in 22 colours too mamas!).
