  Entrance to Central Market
by barryg23

Gafsa is a popular stopping point for tour groups travelling south so you might expect to find plenty of restaurants here but after 10 minutes of looking we gave up and decided to have a picnic instead. This was a good option as we had parked near an indoor food market and there was a park nearby, on Place 7 Novembre.

Markets in Tunisia are extremely good value. While you might be ripped off in shops or elsewhere, the prices we paid in the markets always seemed very fair. We bought Berber bread, baguettes, cheese, water, olives and something that looked like pancakes for just a couple of Dinars.

The market is on Avenue El Kacem Chabbi, though there is an easier-to-find entrance Rue J Abdennaceur, just below Place 7 Novembre.
