The markets that were shut down include The Night Market Muraqqabat close to Dream Palace Hotel and two other The Market near New Era Supermarket.
The outdoor markets featured dozens of pop-up shops and restaurants.
According to Dubai Municipality notices at the entrances, the installations will be demolished soon due to “bad and unsafe conditions” and for endangering public safety.
When asked for comment, a representative from Imtiaz Media & Events Agency told Expatmedia.net, “We are working on getting permits to reopen the markets.”
