» » » The Old Market of Bethlehem (Al Souq)
Opening Hours: Note: The shops in the Souq are closed on Fridays. Saturdays are the most crowded days.
Address:
Fawaghreh Street, Bethlehem
Description:

The Old Market of Bethlehem (Al Souq) is a typical Middle Eastern bazaar where a person can find fresh fruits, vegetables, spices, and local sweets. The Souq extends almost the entire length of Fawagreh Street in the Old City of Bethlehem. Walking through the market offers a glimpse into the town’s daily life. Some highlights of the Souq are the elder peasant women wearing traditionally embroidered Palestinian thobes. They come to Bethlehem from the surrounding villages to sell the produce from their own land. The produce and products available depend on the season.
