If you happen to be in Amman on a Friday, this will be a great tip for you. On the first circle, rainbow street you'll find "Souq Jara" which is a flea market organized by locals. People sell all kinds of stuff ... things they make like bread, cookies, jam, rose water, cushions, beaded jewlery and other stuff that they have in their regular shops else where in Amman.
It's a nice walk even if you don't buy anything, but you can find hand made gifts that are cheap and not so touristy!
Recently, the market has been hosting some musical events for mostly Jordanian independent bands and singers.
The Market opens beginning of May and closes end of summer around September.
Jabal Amman is a reflection of Amman in the 50's, many people are rennovating their old houses as the area has a beatiful view over the rest of Amman

Address: Jabal Amman, 1st Circle, End of Rainbow St.
