A visit to the Fruit & Vegetable Market

Al Aweer Fruit & vegetable market is situated in an important trade zone of Dubai in Ras al Khor area. You will get the opportunity to capture candid portraits of salesmen on the job, and test your street photography skills on a busy day at a fruits & vegetable market. The place isn't brightly lit, so you might need to bring along fast lenses & pump up your ISO.

We will meet in front of Union Co-operative Society to the right of the entrance, where free parking is available. If you need help or are running late, call the EPyC hotline ([masked]) to find out where we are. Nirmal Dhillon & Zaki Qutteineh will be your hosts for the day, approach them if you needed any further assistance.

As usual, anyone who can offer or wants a ride can comment below with their location in order to coordinate with others.

Please remember that as per EPyC rules, you can only upload five shots to the album here.

    A rule of EPyc was annouced to post only 5 photos of every one and reduce it to 4 lateron but some people are given privilege to publish their photos beyond the limitation. Is it right...? many people are annoyed because of this and some one has left the club because of this. Such practice may please be corrected and keep the EPyc running well.

      at the end of the day we are all humans and we all make mistakes but after all the efforts of the organizers to run this club and make it a better place to him and every other member it's not really appreciated to be rewarded by spreading a negative atmosphere... Kindly check the album and tell me who has the privilege to upload more than 5? except for one member who uploaded many photos yesterday and has been notified already to keep only 5 and within 24 hours if he didn't comply, the same action will be taken. EPyC Organizers are not only listening to members feedback but also asking for it constantly to evaluate how we are doing and to make EPyC better... and we expect members to support us instead of attacking us for a minor miss understanding.

      Amr, I personaly have no objection but some people talked about this and I have informed to take caution. I know that to establish any kind of unit is very difficult for which every body should support to keet it alive. There must not be any misunderstanding and even if there is any such incident that should be ignored. It is easy to pointout but but difficult to do . Amr I believe in you and your leadership carry on the show....

    Hey Zaki,
    Isn't better to make early morning by 9am it will be much better, fresh vegetables, less heat and crowed purchasing and selling.

    2 · May 13, 2013

    • Nirmal D.

      Hi Zaki, there will be nothing at 9am. Market get crowed after 3.oopm and some part of the market opens at 5 pm. So 3.30 is the best time.
