Dubai Spice Souk -Discover Recipes

Spice Souk or the Old Souk is a traditional market in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The Spice Souk is located, in Deira and is adjacent to the Dubai Gold Souk. The souk attracts tourists and comprises several narrow lanes which are lined with open and closed-roof stores. The air in the spice souk market is filled with pungent aromas emanating from colorful sacks of cinnamon, turmeric, cumin, pepper, cloves, nutmeg, and dried fruits. Fresh stocks arrive every day, transported by dhow from countries like India, Pakistan, and Iran.
Spice Souk sells a variety of fragrances and spices from frankincense and shisha to the many herbs used in Arabic and South Asian food in its stores. Several households, textiles, tea, incense, rugs, and artifacts are also sold in the Spice Souk. A majority of the trading occurs through haggling. The number of stores trading spices in the Spice Souk has been significantly reduced in recent years due to the growth of larger stores and supermarkets.
