Juma Suq

Jumma Souk/ Friday Market/ Souq-Jumma

Wadi Kabir is famous among many foreign and local shoppers for hosting a weekly souk/ suq on Friday known as Souq Jumma or Friday Market.

When I first came to Wadi Kabir, I thought looking at the market from faraway, a congregation of women. (an illusion created by abayas/ burqas hung in the market). Eventually, I got used to going to this suq almost every week just to roam about.




The souq consists of Omani and Indian vendors who sell you from underwear to computers. It was very large in 2003-2005 but with the decline in purchasing power the market too shrinked. Vendors are provided with electric facility and sheds from the Mumcipality of Muscat. The souk consists of two larges sheds and an empty parking place to hold up to a hundred cars (yes they sell cars too)


This is famous among both Omanis and expats for many traditional and festive items are available at very low costs here.In Ramad'han season, the souk overflows with vendors coming from all regions with their goods like carpets, sheep, furniture, clothes and dates.


Even if you don't buy anything, just roam around and feel like a local with the simple life -- away from the mechanical life of apartments.

Excellent blog! Do you have any recommendations
for aspiring writers? I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.

Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a
paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely confused .. Any recommendations? Thanks!

Hi! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?

I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've
had problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
Maybe you could space it out better?
