Fodor's Review

Although the Negev is still home to the Bedouin people, many of today's Bedouin women are less inclined to stay home weaving. But if you have an eagle's eye and a saint's patience, Beersheva's Bedouin Market might yield goods made by elder generations. The market starts at daybreak each Thursday and lasts until early afternoon, but it's best to get there early. Walk to the back, passing coffee and tea sellers. For sale, if you can find them, are embroidered dresses, woven camel bags, bales of wool, coin headbands (used as dowry gifts), and finjans (Bedouin coffee pots).
