Stocking up for the desert, the market (whether open-air or indoor) is essential. Select your fruit and veg in a bowl and pay a simple price by weight. There is honesty and good banter. Chicken is delicious but don't be squeemish about freshness that still clucks! An don't fall over the odd cow's leg on the ground. The butchery is good meat with decent cleanliness but it is not easy to explain your preferred cut. There is my favourite little trader just to the left of the market entrance. I trust his prices and all the bottled water, bread and simple groceries you want are there. Someone will always carry stuff to the vehicle but be careful of parking rules. If you don't want hassle, walk down the market side of town; if you enjoy the bustle, walk along the shop side. If you need help, Lassan (shop keeper between the two hairdressers opposite) is a reliable friend) and you can leave your vehicle for the famous and skilled attention of Aziz on Avenue Atlas, whilst walking to the market. Zagora as a town is very meaningful for me with lots of loyal friends.

The market, or Souk, is located on the main road in Zagora; it is a lively, bustling place, where you can buy everything useful from fresh food to car batteries, and plenty of artwork, brought from the desert by the Berber folk. The people are well worth making friends with - which means sitting down for a glass of refreshing tea, and discussion about which jewelry, carpets, ceramics you would like to buy... at the northern end of the market, a side road has a monumental gateway across it with a famous painting, proclaiming "52 days to Timbuktu". Locals told me that if the camel is fast, the trip can be done in 48 days! The camel market is not far away...

It's nice to experience a market which is adressed to locals but not to the tourists - and you can buy almost everything there, including useful souvenirs.
