Fodor's Expert Review Souk Atriya

The Medina Food

A tour through this gastronomic oasis stuffed with all manner of products heaped in elaborately arranged cones and pyramids—prunes, olives, spices, nuts, dates, and sugary pastries in every conceivable shape and color—is a veritable feast for the senses. Meknès is famed for its olives, and the variety on display and the painstaking care with which each pyramid of produce has been set out is nearly as geometrically enthralling as the decorative designs on the Bab Mansour. The food souks and kissaria (covered market) run along one side of the medina square.  The kissaria is a good place to stock up on Moroccan spices and aromatic herbs.
