Sudan Shopping

  • Fruit and vegetables

    The best place to buy fruit and vegetables is from the vegetable market or roadside stalls or sellers. the produce will be fresh, delivered that day from the farms. In Sudan small farmers rarely use artificial or chemical fertilizers, so the food is tasty. i like to see the irregular shapes of the vegetables, which are more natural than the rows of...

  • Souvenirs?

    What to buy in Sudan? Do you think about buying a souvenir typical for Sudan? What is typical for this country? I haven’t seen souvenir shops except a few guys trying to sell self made necklaces, rings and small stone pyramids. Swords from the Mahdi warriors can be found but beside of that …?
