Old Medina

While Casablanca’s old medina doesn’t have the atmosphere as other medinas around Morocco, it’s still a good place to practice your haggling skills and buy souvenirs in the small souks. Although Casablanca’s souks aren’t as famous as the souks of Marrakech, for example, you’ll still find an enticing assortment of goodies to capture your attention. Traditional clothing, such as kaftans and djellabas, footwear, tea sets, shisha pipes, ornate lamps, wooden musical instruments, and aromatic spices are just a few things you’ll find in the markets.

Location and Phone Number:

Old Medina, North-west corner of Place des Nations Unies, Casablanca, +212 6686 91247

Quartier Habous

Quartier Habous is one of the top places to find souvenirs in Casablanca. There’s a good mixture of traditional market stalls and modern stores, all within the French-designed New Medina. For those who love a blend of old and new, a shopping trip to the Quartier Habous may be ideal. A range of Moroccan handicrafts can be found tucked away down the alleyways and on the stalls in the open-air markets. Look for Moroccan clothing, scarves and pashminas, jewelry, crafts, teapots, and more. While haggling is still the norm, the air is a little more relaxed than in the old medina and than in the souks of cities such as Marrakech and Fes.

Location:

Quartier Habous, Casablanca

Central Market

The Central Market in Casablanca is mainly known for fresh produce, seafood, and flowers, though it can be a good place for souvenir hunters who wish to take dried spices home for their loved ones. Huge tubs of multi-colored spices tempt the eye, and the strong aromas tickle the nostrils. There are also vendors offering traditional Moroccan items and knickknacks.

Location:

Central Market, Rue Allal Ben Abdellah, Casablanca 20250

Items include colorful rugs, ceramics, woodwork and carvings, pieces of artwork, lamps, and leather goods. In addition to local products, you can find items from all around the country. The fixed prices make for a comparatively relaxed shopping experience, removing the need to negotiate prices and haggle.
