Midan El-Ataba El-Khadra
Midan El-Ataba El-Khadra is the site of Cairo's largest fresh food market. It is sometimes referred to simply as Ataba Square, which means 'threshold'. It is situated between the old and modern cities. Traders set up beneath the arcades of the ancient buildings and sell all types of bric-a-brac. Booksellers have sold their wares on the northern side of the square since the 1930's.
