Popular street market in Amman
Souk Jara is one of the main attractions of Amman. It is a street market divided by the type of product sold: fruit and vegetables, clothes, shoes, furniture, and everything else you can imagine. It's found in the historic downtown area and, like any self-respecting market, it's a dynamic place full of shouts, calls and sellers drumming up business. The souk is not as large or as famous as those in Istanbul or other large Arab cities, but it is always an interesting place to visit to see how the locals live. The food vendors are always the most photogenic parts of these markets.
