it is a market where you can buy many things from the Bedouin style, also some old things and the best is the food that you have all over the market. Very nice.

Nothing Bedouin about this market. Regular junk from china. Avoid unless you like shopping for garbage.

Lots of sights sounds and aromas. Very low prices. Worth the trip whether shopping or just people watching. If in or near beersheba, don't miss it. Thursday's only.

This is a big colorful weekly market that sell mostly very cheap clothes and some household items. There are no Bedouin goods but you'll get to see many Bedouin women who come to buy there dressed in their traditional clothes. If you are in the area on a Thursday morning - it is worth it is worth a short visit... More

Not really a Bedouin market any more, not so many Bedouin goods. Mostly stalls selling clothes, shoes, and household goods etc. Even the prices are not so attractive any more with so many low cost clothing shops having opened in the area.

The market sells mainly clothes, shoes, kitchen appliances, etc. There are some Bedouin stalls on the side with traditional clothes, smoking pipes (nargila), drums (darbooka) etc...but it's only a very small part of the market.

Located not far from the Beer-Sheva municipal market, the Bedouin market takes place every Thursday. If you go early enough, you can still find Bedouin trading sheep & other livestock, but on the whole it's a collection of open-air stalls where people (not only Bedouin) sell clothing, shoes, household goods, fabric and other sundries. It's fun to wander around but... More

first, try coming as early as you can in the summer as most of the market is uncovered and the desert sun will not spare you just because you are a tourist....second, take under considaration that the market itself is an ordinary city market. now, ask people for guidance to the bedouin part. you will see bedoiun hawkers, not many,...
