Fodor's Review

The medina's Rue des Consuls is the place to shop for handicrafts and souvenirs in Rabat: it's pedestrian-only, has a pleasant atmosphere, and imposes no real pressure to buy, aside from the typical encouragements. Here you can find carpets, Berber jewelry, leather goods, wooden items, brass work, traditional clothing, and slippers, among other treasures. 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 rugs. Some 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.
