I've heard that there are several argan oil cooperatives run by woman between Marrakesh and Essaouira, and I'd really like to visit one of them to see the process and buy a few products. Can anybody give me more precise instructions of where to find them or recommend a particular place to go? How much time should I calculate on spending on this "detour" between Marrakesh and Essaouira, and what are the normal opening hours? We'll be going by rental car so we can stop when we want but don't have unlimited time as I was thinking of stopping by on the way back to Marrakesh, although we'll need to return the car at the airport around midday.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
