  Covered Market
by barryg23

The covered market, just off Place el-Hadim, looked very tempting though there was no way I was walking through the narrow corridors here with all our bags after our experiences in the Medina.

We returned here in 2007 and had a proper look around and to be honest it wasn't as impressive as I had first thought. The meat section was fairly revolting with all parts of the animals on show, including plenty of severed heads and innumerable flies landing on the exposed pieces of meat. We had been thinking of buying picnic supplies here, but we chose the market in the Ville Nouvelle instead.

The sections nearest Place el-Hadim are probably the most interesting and some of the stalls have a great selection of cakes, sweets and pastries. But, again, the flies were landing all these which put us off a little.
