The oldest souk in Jeddah is called Bab Makkah, which means door or gate to Makkah. It is a crowded busy market that extends for blocks in every direction. Business is conducted there, it seems, in much the same manner that it has been for centuries. This photo shows a display for a spice shop. Other goods available here are grains, seeds, and beans. Customers can purchase as little or as much as they like. I love the colors and textures of this display.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
