This fixed-price outlet gives you an idea of the prices the traders in the souk really have in mind when they are asking three times as much. Come here first to find out how much things really cost. If you don't like to haggle then go no further.

Check out the goods on offer here and prices before you head into the souks. This way you know what prices to expect elsewhere (minus about 1/3 for a bargain) and can haggle with confidence. I found the quality here quite good but was a little disappointed that the whole place was relatively small. I would come here if I wanted a quick purchase and didn't want the hassle of bargaining in the souks. I personally prefer the atmosphere in the souks and haggling, butif you're not used to it it can be quite daunting.

Was disappointed with the choice and prices - prices were higher than expected and better offers to be had in the smaller shops of the alleyways of the main square.

Ceramics were limited and far too higher price -

Also although previous shoppers advised no hassle we felt pressure when looking at the carpets from staff who were not very happy just to let us browse.

We weren't aware of the ensemble artisanal when we arrived in marrakech, so we visited the souks first. Then other guests in our riad said that we simply must visit, so we did. However after experiencing the buzz and vibrancy of the souks, we found this place quite dull. We did ask for the prices of certain items that we had bought or were planning to buy in the souk, and although they were reasonable, you can get similar or better items cheaper in the souk if you are a confident haggler.

Always start your shopping here as it gives you a brilliant guide to all the items you may wish to barter for in the souk.
