What to buy in Marrakesh?

Shopping in Marrakech can be quite fun. Shopping is indispensable here, you can buy a lot of handmade products, teas, spices and herbal medicines. Most of the traditional Moroccan products are handmade, and the production process can be seen in the stores where the products are sold. In Marrakech, you will find amazing leather shoes, bags of all sizes and shapes, and leather jackets. Women will be especially delighted with the design and colors of the bags, which they will definitely want to take home with them as a new fashion accessory. Carpets are also popular, of all sizes with amazing colors and designs that will delight you. Carpets are very high quality and keep in mind that you will pay a lot for such carpets in Europe.

Silver and metal items: If you love jewelry, you will find a great variety in Marrakech. By the way, it is in the tradition and culture of Morocco that women emphasize their beauty with jewelry, so you will be really delighted.

When it comes to food and spices, you have a very large selection here, and these products easily fit in a suitcase, so visitors often opt for them. There are dates above all. From fresh to candied, large or small. You will be delighted. Dates are very common in Moroccan cuisine and are both a healthy treat and a phenomenal sweetener. Then you can try Moroccan sweets which are traditionally made from almonds and honey. By the way, the sweets in Marrakech are made mostly from natural sugars and not industrial ones, which is why they are so delicious and healthy.

In Marrakech, they mostly drink peppermint tea. Fresh or dried, and we have to admit it smells wonderful. You haven't had a chance to try this mint yet, so bring some tea home. Spices are something that Morocco is famous for, so we advise you to buy them, especially if you take into account the difference in price between Morocco and Europe. One of the typical examples is Saffron. Extremely sought after spice, especially when it comes to preparing risotto, but it is also very expensive, while this is not the case in Morocco at all, so be sure to take it home with you.

The given products are available at the medina and numerous small shops around it. Don't forget that you will have to bargain for everything. It’s just part of the culture here and by no means agree to the first price.
