Madaba is a busy, market town, with plenty of shopping outlets and souvenir shops. However, Madaba is probably best known for its handmade carpets and tapestries and its possible to see them being made in several shops around the town.
Most large souvenir shops in Jordan accept credit cards but the small market shops don’t. So do remember to take cash with you if you plan to go shopping.
