We explored the square and it was great seeing locals in their traditional garb. We found lots of great eats and it was fun watching the roti ladies prepare the food.

This is a one of a kind square. From morning till night, activities changes. Quiet morning prayer time, a few coffee shop opened for local to have Mint tea and coffee. Roti ladies are already making stacks of them, piling up high. Massive orange juice stalls are opening one by one, piling the oranges on their cart without falling down.... More

Here you can find a lot species and rugs. You need to ask for a bargain and a best price. Remember if you ask a price for something will be very difficult to leave without buy.

This is fascinating for the folk medicines and cures, also basket shopping and it's the best spot for carpet shopping

Once you've made your way through what seems like never ending souks, if you're lucky you'll find your way to this little square. Great cafes with rooftop views here perfect for watching the sun set. Nomad and Cafe des espices.

You must visit this place during the day and again during the evening. It transforms from bustling market to bustling eatery - poof (just like that) 😀

This small square, compared to Jemaa el Fna, is packed with vendors of spices, herbal remedies, pet chameleons, iguanas or turtles, and many other things. Best to go just before sunset and watch the bustle from the rooftop of the café Rahba Kedima or café des épices. For a few dirhams one can enjoy a cup of mint tea and... More

This spice square is far more spectacular and intimate than the famous jma el fanaah. Carpets, baskets, oils, spices- wide variety for all tastes.
