Walking around the old town you'll see a lot of honey shops.
Yemenite honey is really special but you will find it just in these shops as in supermarket they seem to have honey from any middle east country but Yemen.

What to buy: Honey and spices like zafferan, much cheaper here than in dubai for example.
They also have really beautiful silk scarfes the price goes from 1 dollar up to 7 or 8, depending on the material and the designes.

What to pay: Half kilo of a good quality of honey(not the best one) is 10 dollars.
