Various vendors (albeit some obviously catering to the tourist trade and not locals) but interesting in late morning after they set up- see it before to appreciatei the difference in space etc. Be wary of taking pictures of people there (we were hassled by a kid) Later after our tour guide turned around and berated him in Arabic he did apologize but it was a little unnerving to be harrassed - I understand however, that that is very rare- supposedly the people pride themselves on their lack of that- I guess we were the proverbial exception to that rule

A lively and lovely little square within the suk. Nice little cafes with free wi-fi. Women selling baskets and lots of spice shops. A nice place you can't miss.

We stumbled upon Rahba Kedima, it is one of the must see attractions in Marrakech, Morocco if you are looking to buy craft souvenirs to take home. . Allow 1 to 2 hours to look around, no more. Make sure you haggle haggle and haggle some more!

we enjoyed this little square, although we took a day or two to find it. its only a few minutes walk from the main Jma el Fna square, but through the souks.
Nice place for people watching, a couple of nice cafes, which appear to cater only for tourists, but none the worse for that.
Nice baskets, hats , spices if you are buying.

This area was one of the better ones to visit. Not quite as busy as some of the other souks nearer to the main square. Very pleasant cafes reasonably priced and good food with excellent mint tea!
