The Zemskiy Group and Al Futtaim Malls’ Dubai Festival City Mall have collaborated to open Market Island, the largest food court in the region.
In December of 2023, the mall will open a brand new Market Island on the ground floor near the mall’s northern end.
The Zemskiy Group, one of Russia’s greatest corporations, developed Market Island as its crowning commercial real estate achievement for the food and beverage sector. The Zemskiy Group, whose portfolio spans more than 150 projects in 16 locations, introduces its food and beverage concept to the United Arab Emirates for the first time at Dubai Festival City Mall.
The Market Island, at a whopping 70,000 square meters, will have 53 unique dining concepts serving cuisines worldwide. With a seating capacity of more than 3,500, the food court will be the first licensed bar establishment within a mall in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The Market Island will serve as a tourist hub and recreational area, offering guests world-class cuisine and outstanding performances and DJ sets by local artists. The perfect combination of dining, drinking, and entertainment will provide visitors and locals with the best social experience.
“We are excited to be partnering with Zemskiy Group to debut the one-of-a-kind food hall experience with the opening of Market Island at Dubai Festival City Mall,” stated Hayssam Hajjar, General Manager of Al-Futtaim Malls – UAE, in a statement released in conjunction with the opening of Market Island.
