Mellah spice market

We bet here you'll come across spices you never knew existed

If you wish to take home a souvenir of the best condiments in Moroccan cooking, pay a visit to the Mellah spice market in the city's Jewish quarter. It is full of maze-like alleyways that seem to transport you back to ancient times and contains a wall that separates it from the rest of the Medina. Business is frenetic and you won't spot many other tourists here. Although it is famous for selling spices, in the Mellah you can also buy metal objects, tapestries and above all, jewellery. The spice market is the oldest in the neighbourhood. You will be amazed by the amount of receptacles and cones that contain cumin, saffron, coriander and tens of other spices, as well as medicinal herbs and plants, dried fruits, perfumes an aromatic soaps.
