I'd read about this market being the most pretty and traditional in Tunisia so I guess I was expecting something a bit twee. But it was neither pretty nor traditional - but it was real and authentic (with a few tourist shops) so can't complain about that. My best advice is to not make eye contact with anyone for the...

We wanted to go and check out the market, but about 15 minutes later we left because of all the scams and annoying locals who wouldn't leave you alone.

Houmt Souk-and Djerba Island -would be nice if not for amounts of garbage everywhere. Nice town and pleasant market area but the Island and town HAVE to clean up all the piles of garbage-trash -its everywhere and attracts thousands of stray cats-if they want tourism to improve they must keep up appearances!!!!!

This is a place of old and new (to them). It's a enjoyable day to visit here on market days if you like to haggle for things they have some very good fake items. I like to just walk around looking and listening taking it all in their ways their style listening to them speaking a number of languages having... More

Bizarre as it may seem this was the parting memory on a Thursday afternoon visit to the flea market at Houmt Souk. Arrived via a very cheap cab journey from hotel zone. Two parts to the market. A flea market that sold piles of used clothes as well as everything else you could think of and an established bazaar. Pretty... More

Beyond the few seconds of picturesque cute, a huge market like one finds the world over, and not only in developing countries, lots of junk, cheap clothes and other equally dispirinting wares, and endless solicitations from the vendors. Was happy to see it, and even happier to leave.

Good market. Look for the Fondouk of Pottery for good deals. Prices are far better than the souk in Tunis. Fixed price stores generally offer good and similar process, but shop around before buying.
