  • AWESOME!!!!...... definitely worth a visit, or like us several...... Best stall is run by Paolo upstairs..... DELICIOUS fresh & dried fruits, especially the walnuts INSIDE dates!!..... Easiest way to find Paolo is to enter through main front entrance & go to the right hand side rear stairs...... He’s at the top on the right hand side...... ENJOY 👍👍
  • Read about it in local guides. But the place did not meet my expectations at all. Like most markets in our times it has lost its primary role of a market and turned into attraction for tourists of which the sellers are not happy at all. But have to say there is nothing really to see, except a couple of ladies dressed into traditional clothes, selling flowers and seeds, if I not mistaken. Fruits and vegetables were not really appealing.
