Souk is a must visit if you are on Jerba! Great place to feel traditional vibes, see and smell local products, try bargaining skils... One of the best markets in Tunisia!

This was a fantastic Souk with as many locals as tourists. Narrow paths between the "stalls" and a real mix of produce / products. Shoes , Spices, you name it. Just be strong, as with most countries in the Middle East / Egypt, when they try to hawk you into their shop .... a fir, No with a smile usually... More

I'd read about this market being the most pretty and traditional in Tunisia so I guess I was expecting something a bit twee.

We wanted to go and check out the market, but about 15 minutes later we left because of all the scams and annoying locals who wouldn't leave you alone.

Houmt Souk-and Djerba Island -would be nice if not for amounts of garbage everywhere. Nice town and pleasant market area but the Island and town HAVE to clean up all the piles of garbage-trash -its everywhere and attracts thousands of stray cats-if they want tourism to improve they must keep up appearances!!!!!

Bizarre as it may seem this was the parting memory on a Thursday afternoon visit to the flea market at Houmt Souk. Arrived via a very cheap cab journey from hotel zone. Two parts to the market. A flea market that sold piles of used clothes as well as everything else you could think of and an established bazaar. Pretty... More
