“We are really honoured to be partnering with the Dubai Police in our weekly community event. The Ripe Markets are about supporting local SME businesses and the Dubai Police share the same vision and passion as we do. We have received an increasing number of applications this summer from ambitious and talented SME businesses wanting to get involved and take part in our weekly market and we are excited to showcase our new venue in the heart of Dubai’s community,” says Ripe founder, Becky Balderstone.
Dubai Police will participate throughout the season with their police horses, dog shows and free pony rides for children.

The Dubai Police will also offer a programme of workshops to help make the city of Dubai more secure, ranging from car safety, cyber security and children’s safety, to name a few.
Furthermore, Ripe Market has also partnered with a number of larger businesses who share the same passion for a healthy lifestyle and supporting SME businesses. among these businesses are noon, Careem, Chevrolet Bolt EV, Adventure HQ, X Dubai, Just Play and Animal Care Centre.
