Nabeul Friday Market

Every Friday, the nearby town of Nabeul serves host to a bustling market, where everything from fresh produce to intricate handicraft designs are put up for sale. The market isn't only a shopping spot but an attraction in itself - a good way to soak in the character of an oriental bazaar.


A trip to the souks may prove to be slightly disorienting at first, but do persevere - once the initial confusion passes, there are lots of bargains to be had on quality hand-made goods. Some pieces to look out for are silver jewellery typical of the region, leather goods (bags and belts), clothing, carpets, and traditional ceramics (pottery from Nabeul enjoys a particular popularity, and is distinguished by recognizable patterns featuring geometric shapes, floral and animal motives). Olive oil and spices are another idea for items to bring home with you.
