If you’re wondering what a haabta is, it is a traditional open-air souq

This colourful affair happens around the 7th and 8th of Dhulhijja, just before Eid.

In the market for Omani clothes and cooking things for Eid? You can find them all here and much more.

You can experience this centuries-old tradition, which is both a commercial and social event, as you browse for things to buy. Cattle and goats, which are auctioned off in time for the Eid festivities, also vie for your attention.

If you’ve never been to a haabta, it’s time that you went to one this Eid.
