Fodor's Expert Review Chez Makki

Essaouira Other Specialty Store

The five Makki brothers have taken over their father's herbalist business and turned it into an empire, running several of the shops on Place Marché aux Grains and in the spice souk across the road. They know their stuff and are happy to explain, over a pot of royal tea, which spices are used in which recipes and the difference between real and fake saffron. They also sell a range of solid perfumes, argan-oil products, and ceramics.
