What locals do:
The Nizwa market has been a local tradition for several centuries and business is still conducted in an old-fashioned manner. Farmers from all over Oman travel from far and wide to auction their animals and sell the results of their latest harvest. Early on Friday mornings, the stalls of the Nizwa souk come alive with activity and plenty of ferocious haggling. The highlight of event is the goat and livestock market. Farmers led their animals around by rope in a circle. Questions arose about the animals’ diets, mouths were pried open to check teeth, and so on. Those interested would offer a deal. Dozens of Omanis sat chatting, drinking karak tea and holding the harnesses of their new purchases.
