I spent two weeks in Morocco, visiting many (and I mean, MANY) souks all over the country including popular ones in Marrakesh and Fes. I must say, this is one of the best markets I've visited. It is not as huge as the others, but the lack of pollution (à la motorbikes!) sure made the experience so much better. Generally, you get a happier vibe here and the store owners are less aggressive. Like anywhere else, do bargain for better prices.

Nowhere good as the Medina in Marrakech!
They are in the process of restoring the area, but the variety of goods is nowhere as good as Marrakech...save your shopping for Marrakech or even Fes.

Go to the craft area where the best shopping is. You need to haggle to get the best price. The shopkeepers are kind and not aggressive. Make sure you don’t overpack before you leave home. You will want to bring home many souvenirs!

I do not think there is much there. The views tom outside are nice as one can see Rabat, the fortress and the town of Sale but very little of interest in the median itself. The prices and choices for souvenir are significantly less attractive than in other towns in Morocco.

Once you're off the main streets, there are many roads of very civilized, covered shopping roads ... foot traffic only (and the occasional scooter). There are some of these 'roads' that are modern and some that are old. Nice atmosphere, and lots of selection. Beautiful, seaside location.
