10 Best Markets in Fes

Locally known as souks, Moroccan markets may become into impenetrable mazes that are difficult to escape. This is especially true in Fes because the ancient imperial city’s winding lanes may make it easy for tourists to get lost. Fortunately, there are 10 easily accessible souks in Medina.

The Andalous Quarter market

This market is located on the same street as the well-known Riad Jama. For visitors, it is a genuine gem, but for the local fascias, it is just a normal part of life.

Handmade chandeliers, slippers, purses, and many other trinkets are available for travellers to purchase and bring home from this souk.

el Henna Souk

Despite being a little farther away from the major attractions, this souk is unlike any other because it is one of the oldest in the Medina. It is well worth the journey.

A hospital used to be nearby, and people used to congregate there to sell henna and medicines. Black soap and other regional cosmetics are among the more sophisticated goods that are being marketed at the souk.

The souk at R’cif Square

It is mostly a food market where you can buy anything that is produced locally, including fruit, vegetables, cattle, and seafood.

The Boujloud Souk

This souk is another place to obtain minor bits and bobs needed to prepare a tagine at home, and it is situated right outside the renowned Blue Gates of Fes.

the Souk Al-Attarine

Talaato Medersa Al-Attarine leads to the lengthy and winding Souk Al-Attarine. Colorful spice booths, dried fruit, nuts, plants, and even shabby-chic clothes stores line the street. It is the ideal location for taking photos with vividly colored backdrops.

the Souk Mejjadliene

Beautiful traditional belts are available at Souk Mejjadliene, which are often worn with kaftans or djellabas but may also be incorporated into more contemporary clothing for a Moroccan flair.

Souk Serrajine

This is the major source for Moroccan slippers, which come in a variety of colors and materials including leather, animal skin, and even plain cloth slippers. Take a pair or two home as a memento.

the Tillisse Souk

Fairly priced handcrafted Moroccan rugs are available in this souk. Locals frequent this market, and tourists may discover the genuine hues of Moroccan streets there. Rugs can differ in size, color, fabric, and many other aspects as well. This is the rug industry’s “Ali Baba Cavern.”

the Souk Haïk

Another market with a wide variety of slippers, but don’t forget to soak in the tranquil mood created by the souk’s surrounding area and the sounds of birds.

the souk Jeld

Moroccan Arabic literally translates as “Leather Market.” They sell boots, slippers, poufs, and leather purses. This is definitely worth a look.
