Ethiopia: Harar – Spice Market

Located just inside the walled old city and next to one of the gates is the famed Harar Spice Market. Not as large as the one in Dire Dawa, but seemingly more authentic and still loaded to the roof with various spices, cereal, dried peppers and plants, coffee, and beans. Just outside the covered stalls of the spice market, the regular markets continue with women sitting in the ground and selling small amounts of vegetables and spices.
