Hubbub and haggling is what you'll find in this spice and crafts market.

9th of April 1947 Square (Great Souk)

A street market to savor

Try to arrange to be in town on a Thursday or Sunday, which is when this enormous square - a primary commercial hub of Tangier as well as home to the polychrome-tiled Sidi Bou Abib Mosque - hosts a wonderful farmers' market, when the country folk come in with their typical dress to sell their wares, both edible and not, to a mix of locals and visitors. Top products to look for include spices, saffron, richly coloured fabrics, and babouches (those typically Moroccan, point-toe leather slippers). A feast for the eyes, stomach, and camera! As you go along, you'll also see cafés in which to have a rest and a glass of tea. And watch your wallet!
