The market is held at Marsa Plaza Creek in association with the Farm House, and runs every Saturday from now until April. Head along between 3pm and 10pm, grab your fresh fruit and vegetables for the week and enjoy the vibe. There are street-style vendors and a mini-petting zoo for the kids.

Visit %Arabica at Al Bateen
Specialty coffee franchise %Arabica have opened another outlet in the capital at the Marsa Al Bateen block on the marina side. It’s the second store for the popular UAE coffee outfit – the first opened in Jazeera Tower in Khalidiya, a street back from Corniche Road beside the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce and Industry, earlier in the year. If you’re looking for a new spot to get your coffee spot this weekend, give it a go. The cafe is open daily from 8am, closing at midnight during the week and at 1am on weekends.

Grab some sushi at St Regis Abu Dhabi

Pull up a chair at Azura Panoramic Lounge and take in the glistening lights of Emirates Palace and the Corniche around you as you feast on Japanese cuisine. The offer is available on weekdays between 5pm and 9pm – making it a nice way to end the work day. For more, go to www.azuraabudhabi.com.
