Shop a Moroccan
Market with Me!
I love visiting the local markets in
any town. The ones in Marrakech,
called souks, were incredible.
CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEF T: ( 1) You can find some
beautiful things at wonderful prices, like these
handmade metal lamps. ( 2) Winding through all the
stands felt like walking in outtakes from Casablanca.
( 3) I can’t tell you what these pastries taste like because
I don’t eat sweets—I just take pictures of them! ( 4) This
is Zubida, our amazing guide who took us through the
markets. ( 5) I loved the food and spice stands the most.
( 6) This was the best-tasting produce of any place in the
world—including Italy. ( 7) It’s weird to live in modern
times and go to a place that has storytellers and snake
charmers and men with monkeys on their shoulders.
( 8) Artisans were making wares the exact same way they
did hundreds and hundreds of years ago.
