I'll say no one will suggest or forbid to shop from such bazar as everyone pass by it to approach Harram. Stall keepers know language of potential buyers and have almost all stuff to distract people from actual purpose of being there specifically ladies,gifts,perfume,clothes,toys,fruits etc a long list of items available at bargain price.

In one of the old bazaar madinahmain streets of the city, leading to the Prophet Mosque, you will find an extremely busy and crowded but really amazing place: The Old Bazaar. Between the shouting salesmen and packed stalls you can buy a wide variety of typical Arabian products. It’s a great place to souvenir hunting. Your visit to Madinah would... More

you can have really brand products and perfumes with high discount rates during high seasons. it is worth a visit but don't let it discharge you from the real reason of your visit to Madina, it is really a big trap, try to avoid, Prayers come number 1

huge construction, redevelopment and major expansion of the Madina Mosque and new blocks of hotels adjoining the mosque has pushed the bazaars and souks of Madina to the outskirts. these developments have brought in new airconditioned arcades and shopping centres that have lost the old country feel. However, if you are searching for the old style markets and souk feel,... More

Any middle eastern country has bazaars and Medina is no exception. It is the usual range of clothes, nick-naks, fruit and veg mixed in with dates, perfumes and in the background jewellery shops.
