Souq by the Sea in Aqaba


Are you planning a trip to Aqaba to enjoy the sun and do some shopping?  Then be sure to visit the crafts fair known as Souk by the Sea every Friday in downtown Aqaba beginning 1 April.

This street bazaar has it all!  If shopping is what you want, then stop by to purchase something made locally to remember your visit.  Over 30 local artisans display their work each week.  Everything at Souk by the Sea is handmade by the people of Jordan.  Handicrafts include jewelry, embroidery, mosaics, baskets, soaps, sand-art, and perfumes.

Join From The Earth along with other local crafts artisans and distributors to experience a taste of authentic Jordanian culture.  We are pleased to be able to partner with one of our key suppliers of olive wood, Desert Rose, to display some of our unique handmade cards and jewelry products at the Souk.

If you are interested in entertainment, Souk by the Sea also provides a venue for cultural exchanges with live music, short films, theater, and other performances.

The Souq takes place every Friday next to the Captain's Hotel in downtown Aqaba from 10:00 AM - 8:00 PM, with live music performed from 8:00 - 10:00 PM.

We look forward to seeing you there!
