Heliopolis' Dr Sayed Abd El-Wahib Street Fruit Market
Updated: Jul 19, 2020
Every time I go to my wife's family house, her father always brings out the most delicious fruit for us to eat. He has two secrets for getting the most flavoursome mangoes, creamy avacodoes, juicy oranges and punchy pineappes; namely, knowing how to pick the fruit yourself and a fantastic fruit market in Heliopolis' Korba neighbourhood.
The fruit market on Dr Sayed Abd El-Wahib Street has a wide range of premium fruit from Egypt and abroad. While it's a bit pricier than some other places, quality is guaranteed.
Fresh fruit in Egypt is spectacularly good. For those of us from counties that rely on imported fruit or on fruit grown in greenhouses, the fruit here will suprise you. The orange and mango season is something I look forward to every year, and there may also be some.new fruits for you to try.
Also, don't let my pictures fool you, it's normally pretty busy, but I happened to snap these pictures at seven in the morning.
