Suleiman Gohar is a busy street in Dokki
, not far from the King Hotel, that has a fresh food market seven days a week.
All sorts of produce is sold here: brightly coloured yet gnarly fruit and veg that looks like it's actually grown, various spices, cuts of offal, fish in buckets of ice, haunches of fresh meat... you name it. Suleiman Gohar is an interesting area to check out and experience a genuine Cairo market, as you watch locals haggling with farmers over the food, and dodge the traffic that manages to squeeze its way down the road.
Since there are a lot of hotels in the area popular with foreigners, you won't feel too out of place wandering around, and it's effectively only one street so you can't get lost.
The easiest way to get to Suleiman Gohar market is to take the Metro to Dokki station.
