Where is the best place to buy souvenirs at good prices?

Hello,

I'm going to Morocco from 09-16 December and I will be in Agadir, Essaouira and Marakesh.

Which place is the best to buy souvenirs (originally from Morocco, not fakes) and where the prices are the lowest?

I'm interested in buying Babouches, lamp, basket, leather bag for my Husband , soap and olives.

Can anyone suggest where can you get the best bargains?

Thanks :)

Try the souks in Marrakech.

Be prepared to HAGGLE if you want a "good" price!

There is no answer to this question. Moroccan tourist economy in the souks is based entirely on your ability to bargain for a price. The best prices can be obtained in ANY city of Morocco depending on YOU and your ability to convince the seller to sell to you at the price you want.

Marrakech is a very touristy place - and you might not know whether the price and the quality is a good match when buying leather things, like babooch.

Try smaller places, if possible. taroudannt and Tafraout is good.

Essaouria - cannot reply.
