Al Madinah: Al-Madinah Al-Munawarah witnessed the revival of Al-Manakha Market on Wednesday. This revival came based on the directives of Faisal bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, Governor of Al-Madinah, aiming to offer wandering vendors the opportunity to sell their commodities.

The committee assigned to restore the market allocated around 1,000 sites for the vendors, who started to show their articles to the visitors of the Al-Masjid an-Nabawi, after receiving their identification cards, which allow them to benefit from the sites, according to the restrictions that protect the historical character of the market and the traditional aspect of showing the commodities.

The regulations ban the monopoly of the sites and impose their evacuation at the time of cleaning and maintenance, or when they are needed for prayer.

The Governor of Al-Madinah directed to restore the historical market to revive it and to maintain its identity as an open site for trade, following a visit he paid to the site considered as a historical feature from the Prophet’s era.
