The Allure Of Moroccan Souks

The open-air marketplaces of Morocco are filled with the sights and sounds of earnest sellers, bargaining buyers, colorful merchandise along with the strong waft of attar.  Sections of the souk are dedicated to a specific product such as shoes, carpets, dry fruit and spices.  A buyer’s paradise, Moroccan souks are places where you can get a cool bargain on a Persian carpet or hand carved vessels.  This photo essay is an attempt to traverse our readers through the visual richness of Moroccan souks.
