Built in traditional style in 2015 this new market complex is located just opposite the Al Jubail bus station in central Sharjah. It is not easy to reach on foot as there are highways all around. Most people arrive and leave by car.

Probably for hygienic reasons the market halls are clearly divided. There are sections for fresh fish with a cleaning facility, meat, vegetables and fruits, nuts, spices and herbs etc. It looks very similar to the Waterfront market in Dubai, but prices are generally lower. Staff is friendly and helpful.

Almost all fruits and vegetables meat and fish under one roof.
Clean and well arranged market.
And prices are cheaper too.
Seasonal fruits makes worth visiting. Variety and selection are really good. Plenty of parking space. And there are people if you needed your car cleaned while you buy your stuff.

Visiting this market is a great way to understand the local culture and life style. The market is set up well with different sections divided with meat, seafood, vegetable etc. Be sure to check out the back by the river. See all the boats that brought stuff from aboard.

This market is one of the three markets at the center of Sharjah city close to the bus station. I just trekked to reach the markets to see lots of fresh fruits for sale including food stuffs. I was surprise to find yams among the food crops on sale and i was told it is from my country's capital Abuja and there is water yams from Ghana. I had my breakfast in one of the food canteen at the market and ot was nice. After visiting the other two markets located close by i still came back to this market to buy some provisions at a super market at the market.

I go once or twice a week to this sook, the vendors are friendly and offer fresh produce concerning fruits and vegetables, meat of all kinds and also fish with a small barbecue service on request. The hygiene and cleanliness are perfect, a great experience to recommend for all.

It is designed in traditional style and they have more than eighty species of sea food. It also includes a separate section fruit and vegetables, and meat.

They have proper cleaning area for the fishes and lots of people working to clean the fishes. It is located between Corniche Road and Sharjah Creek.

It extremely vibrant, energetic and busy. Amazing cleanliness.

Souq Al Jubail is not exactly a souq (traditional market), like some of the heritage souqs in Dubai or Sharjah. It's a spacious, modern building, built next to the Sharjah Creek, across the road from Al Jubail Bus Station.

The souq externally has some traditional architectural elements such as domes and Islamic patterns. Internally, it has three sections: one each dedicated to vegetables, fish and meat. The place is well air-conditioned, so the smell does not carry and is, by and large, a hygienic place.

Unlike other shopping destinations, there are few activities here for those who are not into shopping. There are barely 1-2 joints where one can eat. There are some good date sellers in the vegetables section, offering a nice variety of dates. One can spend about 45 minutes here.

I love this souq so much.it was not my first visit. The building is beautiful and we can find fresh vegetables, fruits , juices and small restaurants too. The fish market is very exciting, especially the people who have no Sea at home.. like me :) we can find meat market too, and special shops for many kind of honey and fried fruits. So the market is not just for shopping we can spend nice time there.
