Moroccan Souks - part 2

The typical markets are covered lane ways with stalls occupying all available space left and right. They are permanent 'shops' and some stall holders seem to 'live' in these spaces.

...fresh meat and brightly coloured tagines to cook it in, for tourists,
...and shoes for the locals,
...all manner of pest control,
and all manner of weight control,
...teapots galore,
...a creep of tortises
...the smell from this chicken lane was incredibly bad - too bad to go on the hunt for a good photo.
...dancing dolls,
...olive oil and argan oil [cosmetic use],
and terracotta earthenware platters sumptuously decorated with silver repousse work.


  1. I look with diferent eyes to all these photo's, and yes lots of pictures to sort out for me to.

  2. A proliferation of paraphernalia Noela. The photos transport me to exotic places. Thanks for the mini-trip.

  3. I've always wanted to go there, but now, more than ever! These photos are fantastic- a feast for the eyes!
