Visiting a city's souq is the best way to get to the pulse of an Arabian city. These traditional markets are pillars of Arabian culture, and Dammam's Share Al-Hob souq does not disappoint. They are vibrant, noisy, and bursting with character.

This interesting market is a medley of shops, stalls, and food kiosks that reflect the customs and culture of Dammam. Share Al-Hob, due to its vibrancy and dynamicity, draws customers in to buy a wide variety of goods such as fabrics, jewelry, and regional souvenirs. There is a lot to learn and explore here, and the vast market entices intrepid shoppers with various goods, some of which capture the character and history of the city. Furniture and artifacts are among the most sold items here.

Located in the city's center, Share Al-Hob is also known as the 'Love Market' by locals. Couples come here to purchase wedding and anniversary presents from the sparkling window displays. If jewelry tempts you, go prepared with the most recent gold prices and be ready to haggle because it's all part of the show.

Beyond the gold shops, much of the souq's activity happens on a busy, recently revitalized thoroughfare where merchants mingle with locals. Although Share Al-Hob opens at 4 p.m., the market comes to life at night.

How to explore Share Al-Hob?

  • After dark, the streets of this city are alive with street performers, live painters, and musicians, whose tunes blend with the cries of food sellers selling local specialties.
  • Try hot luqaimat, a fried dumpling drizzled with date syrup and sesame seeds, as you navigate the crowds and take in the atmosphere. Other foods to try include falafel, shawarma, and another Middle Eastern cuisine.
