Jordan?

Not Jordan, though the country where this place is has an equally lengthy historical past.

Is this in Turkey?

Yes, it's in Turkey. Out of curiosity, what made you think that?

Most telling is the big clue I see - the maximum height sign. Many, many things about road signs can very easily give certain countries away - to me, anyway. Also, the potential customer at the veg stall looks Turkish. :)

I don't know what ethnicity the veg sellers were: Turkey has a diverse population. There are height signs like that in most European countries (and maybe elsewhere too) so it was a lucky guess. :-)

No it wasn't a lucky guess - they are all quite different if you know what to look for, as I mentioned. :)

Neither do I, but the potential customer looks Turkish to me. Again, the real easy give away was the road sign. :)

I'll remember that you're a road sign expert in future. :-)

Not an expert at all, ;) I just know road signs indeed differ quite a bit from country to country.
