Local markets are available. These local markets are interesting places for the purchase of fruits, vegetables, and cotton products at very low prices.
The Tawfikeya Market, for example, is in downtown Cairo, close to 26 July Street. The shops and street suppliers in the area open until the early morning hours and almost all are sold.
