As suk's go, this is a good one. You can tell this is not calibrated for tourists, but for the locals. Come just to soak in the experience, even if you don't buy anything.

Worth a visit although stalls do change. Lots of handicrafts as well as street food and free to enter. Easy to get to and we picked up some lovely beads and necklaces for gifts. Arts and crafts and hand made products.

This is a big open market that is open only on Fridays during Summer at Rainbow Street in Jabal Amman.

It is a great opportunity to see the handicrafts that are made live. Definitely you will see something new. Painters, mosaic, wood, clay, garments, and food. They also have a food court and plenty of fresh drinks and live cooking.

It is full of people, and definitely you will love it. if you are a tourist or a local, you will find something new that you will fall in live with.

Souk Al-Jara is a Friday morning must. Especially since many other places will be closed down until mid morning. This is open from 10 am to 10 pm and is an ideal place to find locally produced crafts.

A lovely stroll through an outdoor Bazaar right at the end of Rainbow Street. It's awesome to take a look at handcrafted gifts and goods made by locals. And the food options at the end are a treat after walking outside under the Jordanian sun.

A note to many who wish to visit, keep in mind that the Souk is open only on certain months! Usually from the first Friday in May, and until the last Friday in September.

I went to first circle Rainbow street, hoping to visit the market today. FRIday 26 April. @ 12 noon. There was nothing! Walked the whole length of Rainbow street, nothing!

Has the market died?

The market is open air and filled with lots of local products. They range from mugs and household items such as dishes to books, soaps, paintings and embroidered items. You can find all sorts of things there and over the years and multiple visits to Amman I have found lots of lovely gifts. You can count on find in a few unique items each visit. It is well worth a visit for an hour or two.
