    Life in all it’s true colours
    A great few hours spent through the various alleys of market stalls and shops. So much on offer from souvenirs, to hand made craft ware, T-shirts, trainers, fruit and veg and even an indoor fish market You need your haggling skills on form as any purchase requires you to haggle. Everyone is so accommodating and if the price is not right for you then you can happily walk away only for the price to tumble to your price bracket. Need a break then stop off at one of the many little coffee shops and sample the local delicacies on offer.

    A fun introduction to haggling!
    This was not far from our beach resort, so we took a taxi there and back on a Friday morning, which was very affordable. We spent a little more than an hour going through the market and had our first experiences haggling. We later worked out we probably overpaid for a few items, but not outrageously. It was very hot in early July, but there was shade and icy refreshments being sold, and even some shops with air conditioning.

    On a Friday morning in mid September it was busy and entertaining. Not a huge market but plenty of bags, shoes, frocks, pottery and souvenirs. It's worth the 15dinar cab ride from the hotel. Don't go unless you're prepared to haggle.

We went to Neubul market on a Friday and also a Wednesday.

We found the Wednesday market a lot more quieter, relaxed and cheaper.

The Friday market had a lot of hussle and bussle and was very busy.

The Wednesday was a much pleasurable day. There were a lot more 'fixed price' stalls and shops that were open that weren't open on a Friday.

You could spend hours and hours There. We loved it!

If you like a market then this is a great place to visit
Yes you do get a lot of vendors approaching you to entice you into their shops but as long as you are polite & friendly with them they will happily take a "no thank you" from you & move on.
Yes you do have to haggle but that's part of the fun. Start with a low offer but make sure you stick to a price you're prepared to pay and most likely you'll get that price.
Lots of love leather goods, jewellery, clothing / footwear, spices
Worth spending a couple of hours taking in the sights and sounds

Went on a half day trip with Thomas Cooks from my hotel, went to a ceramic factory first of all and so saw lots of items that were being sold on the market. The shopkeepers all loved a haggle, I had a price I was willing to go to in my head and most times I get it for that price but probably could have got is even cheaper, but I was happy with what I paid, yes okay most stalls sold very similar but a souvenir is a nice reminder of the time spent here.

The market is held every Friday from 0800 to about 1400. It is relatively easy to find if you arrive by bus. Walk out of the bus terminus onto the high street and turn right, the market is about 400 metres away. You'll know when you're getting close when you see a roundabout with an ornate sculpture of a ceramic fruit bowl with loads of oranges. Then pass under the large gate in the wall and you're at the start.

The first couple of hundred metres are permanent shops selling mainly tourist souvenirs. Leather goods (shoes, bags, belts), wooden goods (serving spoons, bowls), ceramics (plates, dishes, bowls) and clothes dominate. Expect to be pestered by nearly every shop keeper asking you to look in their shops. Needless to say that hard bartering is the order of the day here - you'll be surprised about how low you can get the price to.

There is also a covered/indoor area which has permanent shops and offers some respite from the heat and clamour.

Further on is the local market proper which is characterised by temporary stalls or even goods simply displayed on the ground or in the back of a truck. Here is sold the goods the locals are after, cheap clothes and shoes, hardware, fruit & veg and even plants for the gardeners. The pestering to view and buy the goods has by now abated.

This part is all very, very busy, chaotic, noisy but well worth a wander around although it is a bit of a maze. However wandering around can be a problem in some areas which are wall to wall with people! Due to this I wouldn't recommend it for people with walking difficulties.

There are cafes dotted around should you need a break. Also a few carts selling nougat and other sweet goodies.

We spent about 2.5 hours looking around which I think is about right. Especially if you want a bargain.

Nabeul market was a good experience but a word of warning!!! DO NOT DO NOT use the toilets in the market café. They are DISGUSTING and the worst I have ever seen in over forty years of travelling including middle east, far east and all of Europe. Obviously I would not eat at this market café if the standards of the toilets reflect the cuisine on offer. Also, two elderly ladies sitting near us were charged 15 dinars (£5) for two bottles of Fanta. Outrageous!!!!! Avoid this café like the plague!!!!

My favorite place in Tunisia , we've been going since 1982 to Nabeul & love it . To find the weekly souk /market just amble through the Medina with its many colorful shops & cafés & you will eventually come to a large bustling market . Even on a Thursday there is a lot to see as people set up their stands ready for the following day .
I bought fresh juicy lemons & mandarins at 1 dinar the kilo , essential oils at 3 dinars each , rose , jasmine ,lemon . I always enjoy rummaging through the second hand clothes & often find a bargain .
The succulent date stands & homemade nougat and Turkish delight stalls are wonderful - photos attached .The locals are all very friendly & I find Nabeul hassle free compared to other Tunisian tourist resorts . A must visit !

Made our way from our hotel in Hammamet via taxi costing 20 dinar even though there’s a cheaper option available using the local busses for 1 dinar!

Having been there before it was every bit enjoyable as the last, saw some familiar faces whom recognised me after 4-5yrs lol

A bit of everything really nothing special but be prepared to haggle and bring the price down by at least 70% of what’s being quoted.

If you’re up for haggling then this is the place for you.

At first it can appear very overwhelming but it’s a great few hours out!

Prepare to get grabbed, shouted at and hassled! If you firmly tell the people NO and put your hand up they will leave you alone!

My advise would be walk through the whole market ... and then go back and buy the bits you want to buy! As a lot of items are throughout the whole market so it’s worth seeing where is cheaper.

If you have come from an all inclusive hotel... hide your wrist band. As you will get people telling you things such as them being the chef and will name your particular hotel (from seeing your band).

Other than that, it’s a great few hours ... keep your bag safe :)
