The souk is open every Friday from 10 AM - 10 PM on Rainbow Street. It might not look like much at first but you'll find some of the most wonderful little pieces of jewelry, antiques, soaps, books, and kitchenware. great way to spend a Friday, although the mornings are less crowded than the evenings possibly because of the daytime...

Souk Jara is a great way to pass a weekend morning during the spring season! Lots of local artists sell their wares at really competitive prices. If you want some nice local jewelry or Dead Sea salt products, this is the place to find them. Try a bubble tea or watermelon smoothie!

Only opens in Fridays does this rich bazaar opens filled with all kinds of amazing handicrafts & folkloric crafts kiosks. Things there can't be really counted from their variety; from home accessories, antiques, paintings, sculptures & many many more. Beside all of that many home made food & beverages kiosks also are there. Hope you enjoy your weekend.

Nice place to hang out for an hour but if you have a child with a stroller its better to keep him home because the floor is not smooth and the place is a little bit crowded in weekends

This is a great little spot to visit on a Friday, by Rainbow street anyway, you can buy lots of little local gifts and food, lots of stalls are non-profit and set up by local foundations. Lots of small tea sets etc books, but right at the end, lots of different things to eat and drink.

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
