Shopping in Fes - authentic goods, best outlets, malls and boutiques

It is better to go shopping at the "souk" in Fez. This means "market" in Arabic. The largest Bazaar is located in Medina. This is the oldest part of the city. In addition to it, there are five other fairly large markets here. You should not go shopping just for a couple of hours in the hope of quickly purchasing everything you need. So you run the risk of not enjoying the charm of local markets and miss a lot of profit. Souk is not only a place of purchase and sale but also a local open-air museum and the club of interest here. You can observe the work of artisans, find items whose shape and purpose have not changed for centuries, and communicate with local residents here.
The most significant attractions of Fez are concentrated in the medina of Fes el-Bali (Arabic for Old Fez), the oldest district of the city. It presents hundreds of religious buildings, … Open
It is necessary to bargain in Fez. The price can be inflated three, five, and ten times in any market here. However, you will have to pay in stores with a cash register and a fixed cost of products usually a third more than what you can negotiate with the seller in the market. Keep in mind that Moroccans sincerely consider a dispute about the price an important part of the purchase. They do not like aggression and haste in this. But if you refuse to buy a product for which the seller has given you a discount, then you will do extremely indecent. So you should not start arguing about the price of the product if you do not plan to buy it. The seller will roll his eyes more than once and raise his hands to the sky, showing how hard the concession is given to him. Don't be surprised that sellers are constantly touching customers here. This is also quite normal here. It is better to determine for yourself the price for which you are willing to buy an item before bargain. If you do not agree with the seller, try to leave. He will catch up or call out to you if he is still ready to give a discount. You can bargain for expensive goods and for small souvenirs. No one will consider you petty.
If you decide to buy argan oil, you should buy it in a store that specializes in cosmetics. Oil in ordinary plastic bottles in the markets is diluted as a rule. Be sure to pay attention to natural glycerin soap with various additives. It is inexpensive, smells nice, and washes away dirt very effectively. The set for a Moroccan Hammam is suitable for fans of exotics. Black soap, mittens kiss, henna for hair, and ghassoul for the body are inexpensive. The procedure is so simple that it can be done even at home, after steaming the body in a normal bath. Aromatic substances in the form of dry cubes are also very popular.

You should buy spices in the markets. There are a lot of them here. They are so different that you can find anything. If you want to take Jasmine, then know that cheap yellow powder is used exclusively for color and flavor. Real saffron costs more. It is sold by grams. You can also buy a couple of kilos of olives. Local cookies, both shortbread and almond or fruit essence will be a good choice. The local coffee is very tasty. Tea is also good. You can buy it together with a small tea set. Local dried fruits and nuts are good. However, you should buy them in specialty stores if you want the highest quality product.
If you decide to buy something from clothing, please note that too low prices can be a sign of a product from China. You can buy, for example, Moroccan babouches. These are slippers without a backdrop for the house. Also pay attention to leather shoes, sandals, and bags. Leather jackets and belts are also good. But you should, first, smell the product, and secondly, check the paint before you buy a leather product. There is leather of different quality here. So there is also one that fades. However, local products are inexpensive and look authentic. In addition, the tradition of manufacturing leather products in Fez is more than 1000 years old. You can buy a djellaba, kaftan, or takshit if you want to buy a Moroccan-style outfit. Local shawls are also inexpensive.
Luxury hotels can be found in all districts of Fes, without exception. However, hotels converted into historic buildings are of particular interest to travelers. In the very center of the … Open
If you want, you can buy unusual jewelry made of gold and silver. But you should be careful. If you do not understand jewelry, do not buy anything expensive from dubious sellers. They can trick you. You can buy a lot of interesting things for your home in local markets. Small ceramic tagines for spices or salt will be a good choice. In general, there are a lot of good ceramics in the city. So if you want you can buy a tea set for twelve people or a painted dish for a whole goose. Bright Moroccan bedspreads are beautiful. Berber carpets are also interesting. However, local sellers like to sell them to tourists at a very high price. Local teapots and small lamps made of red-brown leather, colored glass or bronze are interesting. You can buy a beautifully made mirror, an African mask, or a statue of arborvitae.
