How it works:
- Stall owners or street touts will tell you that their products are ‘locally produced’ or fair trade products. Thus, a higher price is charged to help the local community.
- Truth is most are imported from other parts of the Arab Peninsula or China where it is cheaper to make.
Places to beware:
- Jerash: Jerash Ruins
What to do:
- You won’t be able to tell if you are not an expert. Hence, just buy whatever you like at a price you think is fair.
- Alternatively, GetYourGuide (leading day tour platform globally) has one shopping tour.
