This Suq comprises a large number of shops selling meat and vegetables. Half a century ago, many of these shops specialized in Arab, traditional blacksmithing, using hammering and blowing, as well as copper and other metal works. A group of local artisans, particularly Armenians, excelled in whitewashing copper utensils and cooking pots, and the Suq was often referred to as Suq al-Nahhasin (coppersmiths).
