Rissani, on th edge of the Sahara, has one of the most comprehensive locals markets or souks. All the produce is generally local, most produced in the neighbouring oasis and many handcrafts ranging from carpets to the polished fossils

Definitely one of the best souqs in morocco that we visited. Very authentic and the tourists were few in number so it was basically a local market. Not a tourist market like the souqs are in Fes and Marrakech. We bought a carpet there that...More
