Marrakesh Shopping

Souk Lghzal

  • Outdoor/Flea/Green Markets

Fodor's Review

North of Djemâa el Fna on Souk Semarine, you pass a fairly prominent derb that turns off to the left (Rue R'mila Bab Ksour, also called Rue el Ksour). Take the next right turn and wander down a few yards (towards the Spice Square or Rahba Qdima) and on the right you will find the small square of Souk Lghzal, the Wool Souk. Today women sell secondhand clothes in the square, and the odd djellaba. A real treat can be found in the apothecary stalls leading up to the entrance

to the square, and immediately to the right on entering it. There are spices and potions galore, as well as animal skins (zebra, snake, leopard), used by women for magic: mostly in their desire for marriage and pregnancy.
