Marrakesh Shopping

Carpet Souk

  • Outdoor/Flea/Green Markets

Updated 09/03/2014

Fodor's Review

The site of the old slave auctions held up until the French occupied the city in 1912, the main carpet souk—called the Souk Zrabia or Le Criée Berbère—has a flat, shiny floor in the middle of the surrounding boutiques used to roll out the rugs to display to potential buyers. To get there head north on Rue Semarine, and just after the Souk el Attarine branches off left, take the next right turn off the street (which is now more properly named Rue Souk el-Kebir—the Big Souk Street). The carpet souk can also be reached from a passage in Rahba Qdima's northeast corner (to the right of Le Café des Épices).
