Fodor's Expert Review Ensemble Artisanal
It may be rather touristy, but this is a great way to see all the wares of the souk under one hassle-free umbrella. Several boutiques in modern confines 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. Make a note of prices here and then aim to pay around 25% less in the souks.
