    Quiet market with marked prices - very different from the medina
    Just outside the medina and down the street a few blocks from Koutoubia is this quiet oasis. Simply put, it is an artisan market where you will find very much the same items you will see in all the medina shops but in a much different environment. If you don’t feel like bargaining or haggling, then this could be the place for you to come. Most prices are marked and you will typically not negotiate prices, you just pay the marked amount. There are fountains and some trees and a small place where you can get drinks and snacks. It’s almost like a little mall. We got a few items here but also used it as a guide to get some ideas for pricing of other items we would get in the medina.

    National showcase
    Checking the price levels at the official governement outlet makes it easier to consider the shopkeepers asks before entering the big bazaar, souk. You get also an overall idea of the array of craft products Marrakech can offer - handpainted woodwork, leather footwear, woollen carpets, colourful ceramics, straw items, metalwork, Berber jewellery - all hand made locally from natural materials. There is also a small cafeteria to sit down in the shadow and rest.

    Great items but ensure shipping before leaving
    This is really a 5 star and 1 star review combined. (Place is also known as Palais Twizra). Five stars for the products - they are simply amazing. I purchased a carpet that I really love even though I'm pretty sure I overpaid for it. Related, this is a 1 star for the process I had to go through to actually get it to my home in the US. The sales pressure there is relentless, whoever said below that this is a place to escape the haggling is severely incorrect. Then for weeks I thought this was a scam as all the promises about shipping turned into vague emails. However, I called my tour operator from overseas and he was so concerned that he intervened and sent a representative down there to straighten it out and voila it arrived three days later. Even from abroad you have to get tough! Worth it though if you don't mind a full contact / exhausting experience.

    Great place to window shop without being hassled
    This place is great if you want to get a feel for the products you will find in the souks, but without the constant pressure to buy something. The quality and craftsmanship is very good, and in most cases better than you will find in the souks. The downside is that the prices are fixed and generally higher than the souks - albeit there is a little flexibility to haggle if you buying several items. Overall, a far more serene shopping experience all round.

    Chilled Shopping Experience
    Whilst we enjoyed the Souks, if bartering isn’t for you this is the place to come! You can get all the items you can get in the Souks but the prices are clear and there is no expectation for haggling. We didn’t get bothered by any shop owner at all either, all were very friendly. Take cash, as many shops won’t accept card due to high fees for them.

    Best for carpet-shopping
    If you plan to buy a carpet - go there! Same carpets what you see in medina or specialized carpet places, and many times cheaper. There is 3 shops what sell carpets, all size, all patterns, just chooste. All have price so you can see yourself. Also very good place for shopping wooden and metal souvenirs. One little shop was selling argan creams and soaps, so probably you find bigger selection somewhere else.

Enjoyable experience with no hassle. I just wish that they had a bit more variety and colours available. I was surprises that there was a 3% surcharge for card.payments.
But overall easy ans quick purchases compared to the Medina.

The souks of Marrakech are absolutely a must-visit, but I found actual shopping there too stressful. I'm not much of a bargainer, and I like to browse, which can be hard to do when eager salesmen are constantly pushing their wares. I, therefore, loved the Ensemble Artisanal and heartily recommend it. It's cool and calm, there's a lovely selection of quality goods, the artisans are there to chat but are not pushy, and the prices are fixed and very fair. (The Lonely Planet guide suggests you might get better deals in the souks, but I didn't really see that. In any case, why do tourists from wealthy countries feel the need to get absolute rock-bottom prices from skilled crafts people who make what I imagine is already a decidedly modest living? Prices are already much lower than at home--why not pay at least a fair price here instead of squeezing people dry!?)

If you are not into crowds and haggling prices, this is the place for you. We did not find it till the last day of our stay and it was right next to our hotel. I assumed we would pay more for items than in the Souk market, it was not the case. The prices were on parr and wonderfully stress free (I am not a haggler). One shop in particular deserves a mention- Shop 9. I brought several wooden items. It is definitely worth a visit. Mohamed was lovely and did not pressure us to buy at all. His goods were well & lovingly crafted. A visit there put the fun back into shopping! The good news is his shop Artisanet is on Etsy- though with a smaller inventory, but worth checking out.

We visited when we holidayed in Marrakech 10 years ago and this place is still going strong. Fixed prices throughout, although a little negotiation is possible on higher priced items.
Not everyone is at ease bargaining - so should not be embarrassed in shopping here. Having lived in both Asia and the Middle East haggling does not faze me, it's good fun, but it is tiring and time consuming and not in everyone's comfort zone.
We shopped for a couple of items here and found the quality to be superior to that in the souk. Also goods are not dusty, faded and well handled. I was happy to lose a few dirhams for this.
Some vendors will charge extra for card transactions (cash is preferred) - others not. We part paid for one item in Euros (at an acceptable rate).
There is a small outside cafe and handy WC's upstairs!
