Morrocco - The Marrakesh Market

Marrakesh has the largest traditional market (souk - 'commercial quarter') in Morocco, with some 18 souks selling wares. Crafts employ a significant percentage of the population, who primarily sell their products to tourists. Marrakesh is one of North Africa’s largest centers of wildlife trade, despite the illegality of much of this trade. Tortoises are particularly popular for sale as pets but Barbary macaques and snakes can be purchased. ......................................................................... #culture #morocco #marrakesh #outdoors
