Marché Maroc Fes, April 23-26 at the Complexe Cultural (Avenue Palestine, Ville Nouvelle)! Mission Marché Maroc craft fairs & training workshops allow Moroccan artisans & small-scale entrepreneurs to reach new markets and gain essential business skills, helping them better compete in the artisanal product market.
Artisans' products are original & handmade, often an appealing mix of the traditional and modern. These products are always sold at fixed & fair prices directly from the people who made them, providing unique opportunity for both shoppers and artisans.
Organized by Peace Corps Volunteers, in collaboration with USAID, these annual craft fairs gather artisans from out-lying communities in Morocco and provide a place for them to to network and sell their wares. Events are held each year in Fes, Rabat, Marrakech, and Essaouira.
