Fruit and Vegetable Souk, Ibra

There's a great souk in Ibra that's half market, half social center. Come to shop, come to sell, come to sit and chatter.

Dates are a big deal at the souk and the nose knows a good batch.


Other fruits and vegetables are also for sale. In a patriarchal society like Oman, most of the vendors and buyers are men.

The cucumber and lemon seller.


Another vendor and more serious negotiation at the date section.
