Souk JARA summer 2013 bToday was the lovely opening of Souk JARA 2013, in its 9th edition. My husband & I had the pleasure of visiting the Souk early in the morning and we took some pics of this marketplace buzzing with handmade trinkets, art, and homemade food.

Souk JARA 2013, Art StreetSouk JARA is, for the first time, dedicating what used to be the food quarters, as the Art Street. There you can see paintings by university students, artists, and amateurs. Right on the same Street, there is the Wadi Feynan art gallery, displaying colorful artwork that is worth the visit.
