If you are visiting Merzouga and Erg Chebbi, you will pass through the town of Rissani.
Take some time to visit the Rissani Souq. This local souq is a great place to see life away from the usual tourist centres. Infact there is the undercover souq and another open air produce market a five minute walk away, as well as the usual roadside traders. A small number of shops sell local handmade rugs, blankets, mats, Berber shawls and other handcrafts; These are made at various outlying kasbahs and villages and brought to Rissani souq for sale at reasonable prices.
The best days to visit are the main market days when all the farmers come to town; Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday, although it is open every day.
