Le Trésor des Nomades / Mustapha Blaoui

Bab Doukkala Fodor's choice

The highly respected Le Trésor des Nomades---often referred to just by the name of its owner, Mustapha Blaoui---extends over several floors and two adjacent properties. Here you'll find antique doors, lanterns, vintage tribal carpets, mats from Mauritania, Amazigh jewelry, and all kinds of crafted furniture, housewares, and textiles. It's so well-known that there is no sign over the door.

Shipping can be arranged for large purchases.

Riad Yima

Medina Fodor's choice

This riad turned art gallery and tearoom is filled with original artwork by owner Hassan Hajjaj who's known as Morocco's Andy Warhol. True to the artist's pop aesthetic, expect to find colorful portraits blending pop culture and the artist's own fashions. Smaller items include notebooks, posters, and upcycled lanterns made from sardine tins.

Souk des Teinturiers (fabric and wool souk)

Medina Fodor's choice

To get to the fabric and wool souk, use the Mouassine Mosque as a landmark, and keep the Mouassine fountain on your right while you continue until the street widens out with shops on either side. At the point where it branches into two alleys running either side of a shop selling handmade lamps and textiles, take an immediate sharp left turn. Follow that derb and look for the helpful word "teinturies" in spray paint and then head right. Souk des Teinturiers is also called Souk Sebbaghine. The main square for fabric dyeing is hidden down a little shimmy to the right and then immediately left, but anyone can (and likely will) direct you. Here you'll see men dipping fabrics into vats full of hot dye. Look up to see scarves and skeins of wool hanging all over, in individual sets of the same bright colors.

For the best view, head into the dyers' square and ask to be led into the boutique. A dyer can show you the powders that the colors come from. A lovely bit of magic involves the fact that green powder dyes fabric red; red powder dyes things blue; and yellow powder dyes things purple. Head up the steep stairs and onto the roof if you're allowed—a spectacular view of industry unfolds, with headscarves and threads of every color hanging up to dry in separate color blocks all over the rooftops.

Souk Rahba Qdima (Spice Square)

Medina Fodor's choice

Just a quick turn right and then left out of the Souk Lghzal (via Rue Souk Semarine) is the large square called Souk Rahba Qdima. This square is surrounded by small shops that sell everything from cure-alls to run-of-the-mill salt and pepper and just about everything in between. In the center of the square are lots of woven baskets and hats for sale. You'll also find ladies pounding henna leaves to create henna powder. If shopping isn't your for you, head to the rooftop of nearby Nomad for a glass of tea and a bird's-eye view.

Tindouf Gallery

Guéliz Fodor's choice

This gallery houses a permanent exhibit of Orientalist paintings, ornate inlaid furniture, and antique ceramics. There is a constantly changing program of exhibitions and works for sale by top-notch Moroccan artists and foreign painters living in the kingdom.

Carpet Souk


The main carpet souk—called the Souk Zrabia or Le Criée Berbère—has a flat, shiny floor in the middle of the surrounding boutiques, to roll out the rugs to display to potential buyers. To get here 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).

Ensemble Artisanal

Bab Doukkala

It may be a bit touristy, but this is a great way to see all the wares of the souk in one hassle-free space. Many of the goods here display fixed prices (which are high) for handicrafts including babouches, embroidery, lanterns, bags, jewelry, carpets, and paintings. You can see baskets being woven, carpets on the loom, and other artisans at work. There's even a snack bar.

If you enjoy bargaining, take a note of prices here and then aim to pay around 25% less in the souks.
