The Most Important Cheap Markets of Medinah

The Most Important Cheap Markets of Medinah

It is a pleasure to visit the markets of Medinah on major occasions every year, especially during the holy month of Ramadan or during the Hajj season, when pilgrims visit the city of the prophet and his holy shrine. The markets in these seasons are teeming with people, goods, and the cheapest collectibles. Visitors to the city visit its markets to buy souvenirs for their loved ones or acquire many things they miss in their countries. Also, cheap goods are an essential attraction for visiting these markets, especially cheap clothes, perfumes, fabrics, spices, household items, and some types of electronics.

Many markets in the city sell cheap goods, and therefore, visiting them requires the tourist to arrange for himself a schedule so that he does not miss any of them during his stay. It should be noted that visiting these markets carries two pleasures: the pleasure of shopping and the pleasure of walking around.

Some of these markets are old and have a heritage, and walking around them regardless of shopping is a wonderful and unique pleasure in itself.


The shopping experience at the popular Medinah Souks

The most beautiful thing about the popular markets and flea markets is that when you walk around them, you feel like you are at a multidimensional festival. A lot of people are going back and forth, crowding the store doors, and gathering around some desirable goods, making you have to cross some places slowly, with a beautiful feeling that you are in the middle of this human celebration. The other dimension of the festival is the stacked goods, which come in varied and beautiful shapes and colors. At one of the shops, you find terrible shapes and colors of fabrics. In another store, you will find types of cereals and spices, and at another, you will find a lot of household items displayed outside the store door. Thus, along the corridor, you are bumping into goods and people.
The other side of the festival is the sounds coming from the market; some sellers are calling for their goods, some people are telling sellers about the price, and the voices of children are rising from some squares.
In some corners of these markets, you will find types of old restaurants and cafes, including those that sell beans and Tamis, and some that serve pastries. As for the favorite drink in cafes, it is Arabic or Turkish tea and coffee.
To sum up, what you will come across in popular markets is an experience that you cannot find in modern markets or malls.

Popular and cheap markets have a different taste, and around them you will have a terrible experience.
