A market, called the Masafi Friday Market or Souq al Juma, as it is known locally, even though it is open seven days a week, is found on the Dubai-Fujairah Road as you approach Masafi. The main items to bargain for are rugs, earthenware, antiques and souvenirs.
This is a great place to buy carpets, mats, shrubs (from Afghanis and Pakistanis).
Masafi Market is also a great place to buy fruits, vegetables and garden plants.
Most of the fruits is imported (mainly served by Bangladeshis), but some of the vegetables are grown locally. The pottery is based on local designs.

Favorite thing: Masafi is a village located on the edge of the Hajar Mountains in Fujairah. It developed along the old unpaved road which ran from Fujairah to Dubai via Sharjah.
The village is actually divided in to two parts with the larger section belonging to the emirate of Fujairah and the smaller belonging to the emirate of Ras al Khaimah.
The name "Masafi" is Arabic for "pure water". The village is well known for its natural springs. In fact Masafi is also the name of the Gulf's leading natural mineral water producer, which is located near the village.
