Souq Safafeer

Souq Safafeer, or the Ironmonger Market (as you’ll see it on google maps), is located in Kuwait City. This article states that, “The souq is really a collection of workshops, its origins dating back to the 1950s. The majority of which make items including metal and tin braziers, storage lockers and boxes, fencing, stove hoods, pots and other items on site. The shops take custom orders and deliver within a few days.” In January of 2022, a cold snap led to the rise in sales of braziers from the market.
