Shopping in Morocco
Nobody leaves Marrakech without buying something. Almost every form of Moroccan arts and crafts can be found among Marrakech's labyrinth of shops. The souks sell leatherwork, brassware, copperware, fabrics and elaborate tassels, ceramics from Fez and silver jewelry from Tiznit. Women from cooperatives of Essaouira sell the rare argan oil, Berbers sell ancient herbal cures for everything, from love to financial loss. Outside of the medina, along tree-lined avenues, there are chic boutiques offering the latest in European fashion and beauty products, along with unique housewares, African antiques and objects d'art and Belgian chocolates.
