The Sharjah Flower Market is called the market of plants and pottery, as it sells not only flowers – cut and in pots, from tiny sprouts to large trees in tubs – but also numerous figurines, vases, amphoras and other garden decor. Even those who do not plan to buy anything should visit this place, as everything around is immersed in greenery and scents of flowers.
Address: Corniche Street, a little further than fruit. Opening hours: 6:30-11:30 and 14:00-22:30.
Sharjah East Market
Travelers who want to feel the atmosphere of an old Arab market should head to Souq Al Arsah Oriental Bazaar. It is located in the historical quarter of Sharjah and attracts attention with the type of construction: it is a covered pavilion with numerous shops that are closed by heavy, wooden gates. It sells mainly fabrics, carpets, souvenirs and jewelry. Many shops do not work, but in some places trade continues. So you can buy something interesting and take beautiful photos.
Address: Al Sharq Street, Opp Old Souk, Shuwaihean, Sharjah. Opening hours: 9:00-13:00 and 17:00-20:00.

< h2>Friday Market
The Souq Al-Juma Friday market is located between Sharjah and Fujairah, so it is believed that it belongs to both emirates. Once this bazaar worked only on Fridays, which is why it has such a name, but now, due to the large flow of tourists, it is open every day. Here they sell food, souvenirs, fabrics, carpets, ceramics, watches, jewelry and much more. The bazaar is famous for its low prices and not too pushy traders. It is not worth going here specifically, but you can look along the way. To get to the place, you need to move towards the town of Masafi along the E89 highway and immediately after it turn onto the E88.
