Happy Ramadan, Nimbu Fam!

We know you have a lot going on right now while you get ready for Raya! So let us, at Nimbu, make one thing easy for you. Here is a list of some great Ramadan Bazaars happening across the island along with dates so that you can plan it perfectly and decide in advance which one to visit when! 

1. Raikan Chhaya Ramadan 

Well.. it's not a new bazaar - it's just the official name for our very own, the most buzzing Ramadan market - the Kampong Gelam market. Yes, it's back with a bang for this year. Get ready to have a great time with your family from now till 16th April 2023 from 12 pm to 11pm. With food, retail, entertainment and lights - everyone will have something to do at this market. There is a lot of seating and performances and lightshow on the weekends. And there is a mass iftar happening on 1st April with a pay-it-forward option for you if you wish to share a meal! Visit their instagram page for more details.

2. Geylang Serai Ramadan Bazaar

Another must visit is the Geylang Serai Bazaar from now till 21st April 2023 at Wisma Geylang Serai. This bazaar will have all that you need for making your Ramadan memorable this year from food to shopping to entertainment to lights to activities and of course Raya goodies! We hope you have added this to your ‘to-visit’ list - you have all the details here.

3. Twilight Flea & Feast Ramadan Bazaar 

While this is one of the newer Ramadan Bazaars of the city, but this is also one of the most kid friendly ones as they have some activity areas for kids where they can burn some energy while you wait to break fast (if you are fasting ;p). Its happening from 13th to 16th April 2023 at Downtown east, 1 Pasir Ris Close. Check out their Instagram handle for more details.

4. Sembawang West Ramadan Bazaar 

The Sembawang market is back after a break due to the pandemic so expect some big bash here. Apart from some mouth watering food at the stalls, you will get to enjoy a mini carnival here with rides and games. So again a very kid friendly Ramadan Bazar. You can visit the Bazaar from now till 10th April 2023 opp Admiralty MRT station. 

5. LalooLalang Raya Pop Up Bazaar 

A unique event that celebrates the Malay culture and heritage in Singapore. Located right in the heart of Kampong Gelam, this pop up bazaar features a lot of vendors from food to fashion to all things Raya.. This is a good opportunity for you to support local businesses and a great fix for last minute Raya shopping. Visit the bazaar from 7th to 9th April from 2-10 pm at Aliwal Art Centre. You can check out their website to get all the information that you need.

6. Pasar Malam at Clementi 

Here’s the one for the Nimbu Fam residing in the west side. While this Bazaar might not be very big, but unlike last year it will give a full Ramadan Bazaar experience this year with food, fashion and lighting included… The Bazaar will be happening during the last 3 weeks of the holy month from 31st March to 20th April 2023 at 449 Clementi Avenue 3. 

We hope you happen to visit most of these markets and while you are at it you can always dress up in your Nimbu outfits and if you need new ones for this year then do check out our Raya Store.
