You will see the largest roof Bazaar of Iran with most of the shops which aren't opened for tourists. Real life and trade is going on here. You can start from the Friday Mosque and go East in the bazaar. There are several sections with lots of charming stuff there.

you will like the traditional tea houses where lots of people sit and sip their tea and smoke water pipe - if you aren't bothered with the smoke.

This is what you expect of a bazaar in the Middle East. Ancient and historic, with an astonishingly beautiful architecture, it is a fully functioning bazaar for local people. Not a tourist trap like, say, Istanbul. It was not particularly crowded when I went, but I could tell that it is very popular with the locals. And it goes on for miles, a complete warren of lanes and tiny shops that sell everything that is made in the region. Plus gold and jewellery in a Middle Eastern style. The carpets on sale are to die for, but not especially cheap.

The Bazaar of Tabriz (Persian , Bāzār-e Tabriz) is one of the oldest bazaars in the Middle East and the largest covered bazaar in the world.Tabriz has been a place of cultural exchange since antiquity. Its historic bazaar complex is one of the most important commercial centres on the Silk Road. Located in the center of the city of Tabriz, Iran, the structure consists of several sub-bazaars, such as Amir Bazaar (for gold and jewelry), Mozzafarieh (a carpet bazaar), a shoe bazaar, and many other ones for various goods. The most prosperous time of Tabriz and its bazaar was in 16th century when the town became the capital city of the Safavid kingdom. The city lost its status as a capital in the 17th century, but its bazaar has remained important as a commercial and economic center.[1] Although numerous modern shops and malls have been established nowadays, Tabriz Bazaar has remained the economic heart of both the city and northwestern Iran
