The dates market is very clean and well laid. The shopkeepers provide variety of dates, chocolates and spices. The shops are providing quality products and also enable one to taste the products before purchasing. It is one of the best food market one can expect.

Tasted some varieties of dates and purchased the one covered by chocolates.
It’s a hit as I expected.
