Recommend you get your silver here, rather than muttrah in muscat. The dates from here are delicious and the halwa is unreal.

A very good traditional souk centered the city ans nearby thr fort

It contains shops selling antiques and traditional items along with other items like fruites and veg and Omani Halwa along with dates and spices

The only issue which is really not good ia that it is closing between 12.30-4.15 and if you are tourist then you will not capture to cover it

Nizwa Souq is worth the visit, albeit its much smaller that Muttrah Souq in Muscat.
Friday is apparently the best time to visit when the goat and fish souq is open. It was sad to see that some areas of the souq were empty and chatting to on local storekeeper he said that covid had badly affected the number of tourists visiting.
There are a number of pot suppliers and a must see is the date and spice shop that has numerous spices, dates and dried herbs on show, plus an in shop sesame mill, grinding sesame seeds to make Tahina.

The souk is traditional .Lots of shops to buy gold , spices in reasonable price.
The Nizwa Fort is just located behind the Souk worth a visit.Y You can buy lots of pottery items a separate section to buy varieties of Dates.If visiting Nizwa make sure to visit the Souk as well.

It always feels authentic and genuine when you visit Nizwa Souq, specially on a Friday with all the vibrancy if the people involved in buying and selling stuff. You have to go very early to experience the best part of the souq because by around 9, everything finishes and it is only the touristy shops and the interior section of the souq which is still active.

Don't miss it when you are in Nizwa.

During our Visit to Nizwa fort ,It turned out that the NS will be one of my favourite places in Oman and my top choice for shopping for souvenirs.I claim it.

Opening hours & best time to visit
Nizwa Souq is open for two trading sessions—except on Fridays, when the it is only open in the morning.
From Thursday to Saturday, things start off at 6am. The day trade winds up at 1pm when local people and residents break for lunch and prayer.
It gets going again at 4pm, and the souq stays closes at 10pm.

A dedicated and average 1.5 hours to spend around the souq
Daily items ,food stalls and restrooms nearby are available till late.Massive parking too.

Nizwa is really enjoyable with ıts real authentic style. That souk is amazingly gives you that feeling. And you can observe and feel Omani style is very different than other Arabic cultures.

The authenticity is almost preserved in this rebuilt souk - and for all the vegetables, fish and meat sold to the locals, it's a good thing that it has been rebuilt. It's all interesting to see, including open sale of guns, and as well as loads of pots and souvenirs for tourists, the date souk is well worth a visit - with more than 15 varieties to taste and buy - handily vacuum packed to take home and not expensive.

If you arrive by ship just walk out of the port, it’s about a twenty minute walk in the heat. As you walk out of the port you are virtually in the town you will see the gold souk first although this is only open in the morning I think. And then you walk about 100yrd you will see the other souk which sells virtually everything a good buzz about the place, we brought some kaftans and it was quite good to barter with the store owner just keep it light hearted and you will be fine.
