It was a perfect afternoon walk, after a big, delicious lunch. Souk Jara is a casual, colorful flea market, with goods ranging from souvenirs to antiques (like old coins, cameras and daggers) to handmade crafts, including mosaics, jewelry, soaps and honey. We found haggling could result in 10-20% discounts. Most vendors took US dollars as well as dinars. One special... More

A great activity for a Friday afternoon, Souk JARA has plentiful offerings for every visitor. Located on what is otherwise a small, empty street, this souk pops up for one afternoon a week and turns into a bustling scene for handicrafts, food, and more. Dozens of stalls line both sides of the narrow street, selling jewelry, fans, scarves, knives with... More

Simply put Souk Jara is worth a visit on Friday, the only day of the week when the Souk operates. There is a great selection of handicrafts through to bibles, books and antiques. There are very few refreshments available however so either come with your own water or drinks, or walk back further up the main road and experience one... More

This Open-air Souk is so special with its diverse stalls selling various crafts, it's one of the biggest crafts market i have ever seen. You will find there anything crosses your mind, whether it's made of glass, textiles, colorful paints , gemstones, papers, and even antiquities representing Palestinian and Jordanian heritage. You can get lots of items as gifts or... More

Although I'd just arrived in Amman and was suffering from jet lag, the view from my hotel room tempted me down to the street. I saw the Souk Jara, an enormous flea market, which sells bits & bobs of everything, but specializes in second hand clothing - like an open-air Goodwill, which on Fridays sprawls over the vast area of...

I didn't expect too much from visiting one more bazaar, but as much as I can say – Wow! What a beautiful surprise Soul Jara was. The atmosphere was very calm, peaceful and welcoming, secular. I bought there a professional Moroccan tea kettle, half price in comparison to other shops, so I was very satisfied with fair price. Also there... More

It is a nice place to stroll and see some interesting things. Some booths are nicer than others. Some things seem very expensive.
