Sandy Hayek at the helm of Time Out Market Dubai

Sandy Hayek is a woman of many talents. With a career spanning more than 15 years, she is not only an F&B operator but also a passionate sommelier. Having worked in Sweden and the UAE, where she has held senior positions at a number of award-winning dining and retail concepts including La Serre Bistro & Boulangerie in Downtown Dubai and Galeries Lafayette, she recently began a new chapter as the GM of Time Out Market Dubai, a new food hall. We learn more about her new role. 

What is the greatest challenge you are currently facing?
The main challenge has been opening during the Covid-19 pandemic and introducing a new way of dining to the market. Our concept, Time Out Market Dubai, is one of the first food halls in Dubai.

How will you launch and grow Time Out Market Dubai?
Time Out Market Dubai was launched in April 2021 and is already a huge success. It is home to 17 award-winning chefs who have been handpicked by the editors at Time Out. The chefs represent the best of the city, and we are looking forward to welcoming more locals and tourists as travel restrictions ease.

What are your future plans?
Given the model of Time Out Market, there is always room for growth. In the coming years, we will continue to see exciting concepts from new and existing vendors alongside cultural activities and entertainment to complement this one-of-a-kind dining experience. In terms of expansion, Time Out Market will be popping up in various cities, including Abu Dhabi.
