Beyond the few seconds of picturesque cute, a huge market like one finds the world over, and not only in developing countries, lots of junk, cheap clothes and other equally dispirinting wares, and endless solicitations from the vendors.
Was happy to see it, and even happier to leave.

Good market. Look for the Fondouk of Pottery for good deals. Prices are far better than the souk in Tunis. Fixed price stores generally offer good and similar process, but shop around before buying.

The Medina and surrounding area of Houmt Souk is well worth a visit to see some culture, visit cafes and explore shops. It is around 15/20mins by taxi (depending on traffic) from the main tourist zones. The markets can be very busy around the evenings and weekends. Few tourists visit the center of Houmt Souk, and therefore a 'no thanks' is often needed if you do not wish to look in the market stalls. Personally, I liked my visit and enjoyed speaking to the locals. However, If you are looking for a more touristic place with fixed price gift shops, you may be better visiting the town of Midoun. It is a short 5/10min (3dt) taxi ride away from Hotels such as Djerba Beach, Venice Beach, Hastrubal, and Vinnci Djerba Resort. Midoun is rather touristic in the centre, with a market, many gift shops and a supermarket (Carrefour) if you need anything. The cafes in Midoun smell delicious and are a great place to try some local food after your shopping trip. The shops are cheaper than ones near and within locals hotels of course. If its your first time in Djerba or Tunisia try haggling for some fun. Once last tip, be aware of henna tattoos, if you're unsure it not worth having an allergic reaction ruin your trip to Djerba. Other than that, Have Fun!
