A round-up of some of the city's coolest stores and markets

Al Fahidi Historical District
Why not give your home a design-savvy Emirati makeover? You’re living in the country, after all, so best make the most of the beautiful merchandise and designs it has to offer. The best place to look for it all is at the Al Fahidi Historical District, a labyrinth of shops and art cafés filled with quirky paintings and Emirati-inspired designs. A highlight is the Alserkal Cultural Foundation Store, which boasts paintings from artists around the UAE that are up for sale. Grab a cup of coffee from the Arabian Tea House, admire your favourite piece and give your place that unique, historical feel. Better yet, if you can haggle your way to purchasing a fancy fabric at the Old Souk.

Greenheart Organic Farm Shop
We could all use a bit more goodness in our diets, but with the amount of fresh fruit and vegetables at this market, you may just go full green. The Greenheart Organic Farm Shop began life in 2012 as a weekly delivery service, distributing mixed vegetable boxes to Arabian Ranches residents before setting up a website with an online shopping facility. Needless to say, it was wildly popular, leading to a charming shop opening in Barsha South with more groceries, a bakery, deli and more.
When: Open Saturday-Thursday, 10am-6pm
Where: Barsha South 2
