MG Supermarket

MG is the place to go for travellers on a budget - it's a great spot to stock up on local and international snacks and drinks (and any small necessities) at very reasonable prices. Located at the Centre Commercial, right by the Medina of Hammamet.


A trip to the souks may prove to be slightly disorienting at first, but do persevere - once the initial confusion passes, there are lots of bargains to be had on quality hand-made goods. Some pieces to look out for are silver jewellery typical of the region, leather goods (bags and belts), clothing, carpets, and traditional ceramics (pottery from Nabeul enjoys a particular popularity, and is distinguished by recognizable patterns featuring geometric shapes, floral and animal motives). Olive oil and spices are another idea for items to bring home with you.
