Nice way to spend a half hour in a safe local market. We have been down to shop several times with new arrivals. They always enjoy it. There isn't really a lot here though and after you've been once you have seen it all

Went Friday afternoon, (only open on Fridays) and walked through it taking my time and looking at items. It did not contain the type of stalls or items that I was seeking, it was similar to an arts and crafts area of a flea market. Did enjoy the honey bees and the honey stall. It was a pleasant way to... More

At times too crowded but not the organisers fault. There is something for nearly every taste. Especially the honey from the Aviary amazing the honey comb is excellent if you have seasonal allergies.

This shopping market is lovely to visit, be careful with the sellers and the start they sell height prices then they sell in low just to finish what they have may be less than 50% of the item value. Most of people visit it as trip only not to shop.

A nifty little Friday stall market that is quite clean and interesting unlike other markets dominated by Chinese made products. You might actually stumble on some rare items if you know your stuff. There are local made items as well and books for the bargain hunter. Well worth a Friday afternoon and some revisits if you are still in town

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.
