Completely different market compared to Fes or Marrakech - a lot of traditional handcraft Business - forging, sheet processing, textile processing, date selling, camel milk store, meat and other Shops. All Areas were very dirty and sellers not very friendly

Try to stop here on market day when activity is at it's best. The market offers everything from nuts and spices to camels and donkeys. It's for locals, but that won't keep the sellers from trying to convince you to take one of their donkeys...More
