It has the feel of a Moroccan souk, complete with carpets, slippers, kaftans, spices, and shouting.
Come with me to the casbah…
The city market has been held for a number of years in the Sepes Polygon, and - not surprisingly, given where we are - here you feel like you could be in the midst of a frenetic souk in any city in Morocco. For that reason alone it's worth a visit - to watch the comings and goings of buyers and sellers surrounding dozens of stands selling goods from the everyday (electronic gadgets, cologne) to items with better souvenir potential, such as carpets and babuchas (typical Moroccan slippers). The market runs Monday through Saturday, always in the morning, and it's a great way of becoming familiar with a side of Melilla that has always been an integral part of its personality: buying and selling. If you'd like a great idea for a souvenir or gift, consider a kaftan traditional North African garment - roomy and comfortable, which you will find in varying qualities and prices.
