open-aired patio-style souq

Held just in front of Al Khandaq Castle, this open-air patio-style souq sells local and imported items; from fruit and vegetables to clothing, furniture and handicrafts.

The market opposite Hela Castle sells barasti – plaited palm fronds traditionally used for roofing and fencing – while just along the road, a lively souq trades in locally grown fruit and veg from neighbouring plantations, dates and honey from the mountains, and a handful of crafts (including camel sticks and Bahla pottery) from around Oman.
