Where to Shop — and Not Shop — in Marrakech


Marrakech ranks among the great shopping cities of the world. Indeed, it’s possible to spend several days there doing nothing but shopping and have a splendid time. I have no doubt that some visitors do exactly that.

Because of this, there is no shortage of lists of must-see stores in Marrakech. Some of those establishments are worth your time, but some are not.

The following list includes reviews of some of the most frequently recommended shops, as well as a few gems I discovered myself.

Near the Majorelle Garden, this sleek décor and clothing store appears on almost every list of recommended Marrakech shops. Like the Majorelle Garden, it is something of a disappointment. Most of the items inside can be had in the souks for less (four wooden coasters for $60 is a bit much). But if you’re nearby, stop in to pick up some argan oil, which is attractively packaged and well-priced.
