Date Shop

DSCF7894 1
This shop sells only dates! There are many varieties and many are grown in Saudi Arabia in a fertile area called Taif. During Ramadan, dates are extremely popular. Dates are usually eaten to initially break the day-long fast at sundown, along with maybe a glass of buttermilk or some fresh juice. There’s no doubt about it, the dates here are fantastic!

    Whats the location of this shop

    • Hi Khalid – Since I don’t drive here, it’s very difficult to describe locations of places, especially when I don’t know the street names. I can tell you that it is northeast Jeddah not far from the big fruit and vegetable market. There is a sidewalk date market near it also. The street it’s on runs north and south and is to the east of the big Coast Guard grounds. I hope this helps.
