Jewish Quarters

Located away from the busy souks and Jamaa El Fna Square, the Jewish quarter market was an alternative shopping experience. With much more space and movement the atmosphere was relaxed and there was less pressure to buy, which meant we had the time to appreciate how much hard work goes into making the items for sell.

In the souks there is such a fear of being presured into buying something that you dont want to hang around by the same stall for to long. In the Jewish quarters we were welcomed to look around the stores and to see the details in the work.

There were beautiful restaurants and small cafes to sit and eat many of which were on roof tops, perfect for a sunny day! We purchased some traditional Moroccan natural dyes from one of the stalls. They gave us mint tea for doing business with them and were more then happy to demon straight how the dyes work and their colour when on paper.
