The Dubai Design Week Marketplace, a weekend long, outdoor, retail experience returns to Dubai Design District (d3) for a second edition from 12-13 November.

This year will present an even more varied experience, with 50+ new participants, as well as a curated selection to support designers and producers working in Beirut; from mouth-blown glass and artisanal Lebanese delicacies to ceramics, and unique hand-crafted designs.

Catering to all tastes, a wide range of products will be available including stylish vintage sunglasses and sustainable fashion, as well as ethical home décor from Afghanistan, Egypt and Sri Lanka, handmade camel leather bags, contemporary henna and unique ceramic designs. For the foodies, d3 is home to some of the most popular eateries and coffee spots and the market will be offering a wide range of choices to suit everyone's tastes, from donuts to cruffins, West African vegan food and Mattar Farm meats, French cheeses and Taiwanese teas.

For those wishing to get in touch with their creative side, there will be 30+ workshops for all age ranges taking place in the Making Space. As well as building fantastical cities, fun water colour spray painting and flower pressing, you can make your own pen, craft your own pot and plant your own Ghaf seed. Registrations will open shortly.

For the sartorial, free beard trims are being offered. For the adventurous, the opportunity to test an electric skateboard.

The Marketplace is a consciously curated shopping experience for all the family located in a safe outdoor setting in the heart of Dubai Design District (d3), supported by Dubai Culture and Arts Authority.
