Rue des Consuls Review

The medina's Rue des Consuls is a great place to shop for handicrafts and souvenirs: it's pedestrian-only, has a pleasant atmosphere, and imposes no real pressure to buy. Here you can find carpets, Berber jewelry, leather goods, wooden items, brass work, traditional clothing, slippers, and more. You can peruse Zemour carpets (striped in white and burgundy) from Khémisset, near Meknès; deep-pile Rabati carpets, in predominantly blue-and-white designs; and orange, black, and white Glaoui carpets. Many of the larger shops take credit cards. Try to visit Rue des Consuls on a Monday or Thursday morning when the entire street turns into a carpet market.
