Dates are a main crop of Tunisia. Deglet Nour is one of 300 varieties of dates. Tunisian are very proud of their "Deglet nour" (fingers of light) variety, which is considered as the best date in the world. They are grown only in the oasis of Southern Tunisia (Djerid) and of South-eastern Algeria. "Deglet Nour" is a registered brand name in Algeria but Tunisia is by far the world first exporter country with 30,000 tons.
They are very sweet and with a special flavor honey-like. They should be a bit transparent. They are at their best just after harvesting, in late October and early November. You will find dates in duty free shops of airports both in Tunisia and in Algeria.

The medina of Hammamet offers countless occasions of shopping, but don't miss this special little store called "Kacem Shop L'Artisan" in the heart of the medina (see photo for the map - hope you'll understand it, the owner of the shop has drawn it!). The owner makes the jewellery by himself, with his original ideas, using natural materials. He shows you how he works and is glad to manufacture your jewellery following your wishes and customizing it for you! Last but not least: fair prices.

If you are a collector of minerals (as I am), Chebika will be a paradise for you. The Atlas mountains are a natural mine of minerals and fossils. Here you can buy them at the lowest prices I've ever seen until now.

Go into the centre of Tunis into the Kasbah and just walk through it. You see all soort of things to buy.
Get a lot off the price they ask and have a lot of fun.
Don't forget where you went in the Kasbah, or you can get lost.

For shoppers, Tunisia offers good quality items to buy, and it is fun shopping for souvenirs. One of the most popular items that tourists buy is traditional carpets. Other favorite souvenirs include leather goods, pottery, jewelry, copper and brass, and desert roses.
There are also plenty of souvenir stands located in tourist centers, such as El Jemm, Matmatma, Tozeur, and other places. The quality of the goods offered is not high, but it is still fun to browse and barter nevertheless.
