Shopping isn’t only an interest in Morocco – it’s the lifestyle. The one of a kind souks (customary secured bazaars) and markets found all through the nation — from the colossal mazes in Marrakech and Fez to the sincere regular clamor of country town markets — are one of Morocco’s most noteworthy guest attractions.
At the opposite end of the scale, Morocco Mall, extending crosswise over 10 hectares of Casablanca, is North Africa’s biggest shopping focus. The bigger souks are regularly approximately partitioned into quarters facilitating various exchanges and sellers, for example, flavor traders, stoneware dealers, adornments creators, and calfskin specialists.
Bargaining is a customary necessity, so never pay respect to starting costs. Rather fix a things esteem in your mind at that point consult towards it unhurriedly (Moroccans never surge their bargaining), and don’t be hesitant to just leave if the cost isn’t right.
For guests the principle attract Morocco is the scope of handcrafts. Conventional metal-work lights and the particular blue-and-white coated earthenware from Fez are ever mainstream and moderately cheap buys. In any case, it’s a misguided judgment that another claim to fame here, mats and covers, are additionally shoddy. They aren’t – and the best hand-tied precedents as a rule convey a four-figure sticker price.
If you adventure out of the city and into the High Atlas, pay special mind to nearby specialities, for example, argan oil, rose water, olive oil, Berber gems, and valuable minerals. Staples — including pecans, dates, safeguarded lemons, almonds and saffron — additionally make scrumptious trinkets.
Trinkets sold at the roadside — particularly minerals, gem stones and argan oil — are frequently fakes. The aptitude displayed by Moroccan crystal painters, however, gives some bogus gems esteem in their very own right.
