Celebrate Ramadan 2022 in full form because Singapore’s IRL Ramadan Bazaars are back, bay-bee! Thanks to Covid-19 (not), there hasn’t been a Ramadan Bazaar in 2 years, the last being in 2019. As a big part of the celebration, things have not been the same and both Ramadan and Hari Raya Puasa have been a bit lackluster. 

But now! Now with infection stats dropping, restrictions easing, and a stronger healthcare system that’s holding up through Omicron, it’s finally time to open up again and enjoy the festivities! As such, I bring to you 3 Ramadan Bazaars to visit, eat, shop, and celebrate Ramadan 2022!

Operating Hours: Sat, 2nd April to Mon, 2nd May 2022, 1pm-11pm

The biggest Ramadan Bazaar in Singapore is finally back! Though, sadly, it’s much smaller than it was before Covid-19. Oh, the nostalgia. In 2019, there were 500 stalls and about 2 million visitors. Do you all remember that? It was the biggest Ramadan event of the year.

Now, this year, the Geylang Serai Hari Raya Shopping Experience (GSHRSE) is limited to 40 stalls in total. Hence, the Bazaar will be split into 2 sections, each with 20 stalls. And, bad luck, only 8 of which will be food stalls.

But, on the bright side, no more online shopping and preparation! You can now fully celebrate Ramadan 2022 physically and prepare for Hari Raya Puasa with beautiful clothing, delicious food (after sunset, of course) and festive décor!

This year’s theme is Fairy Tale Blossom Garden, according to WGS Lead Advisor, Assoc Prof Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim! So be prepared to enter a whimsical garden full of colour, flowers and the brightness we haven’t seen during Ramadan for 2 years.

What’s back? Laloolalang’s Ramadan event is back! Though not technically a bazaar but more of an “outdoor event” according to Laloolalang, you’ll find more than 20 booths!

Not much is currently known about the bazaar, but there are some confirmed vendors ready to spread Ramadan festivity! Eat Chulop!’s crispy churros, and Boms & Buns’ decadent choux buns and cinnamon rolls. And, of course, a staple of any Ramadan bazaar, Broti! Their selection of drinks will satiate your thirst after fasting all day.

And no worries if you’re looking for something a bit more filling and savoury. Kream and T Bob’s Corner Steakhouse have got you and your hunger pangs covered with their delicious food.

3. Simei

What’s more, some of the vendors will be switched out every week! So it’s possible that your favourite vendor might only be at the bazaar for one weekend, so make sure to catch them when they’re there! (IMO, there’s nothing worse than showing up only to find the stall(s) you wanted to visit gone.

Either way, be assured that there will be plenty of vendors to wander around and explore their wares. You’ll never be bored with so much to explore!

Conclusion

And there you are! 3 of the biggest bazaars (IRL!!) where you can celebrate Ramadan 2022! It’s been a long time coming!
