info on supermarket prices and products

Hi everyone - I'm loving reading all the wonderful advice and tips on Marrakech from you all.

We're going to be spending a week in Marrakech in May 2011 - 3 days in a riad in the centre and then 4 days further out in the countryside in a self-catering place.

The owners of the country house have offered to take us to the supermarket on the way there, after picking us up from the centre - I just wondered how much things cost in supermarkets and whether there is anything I should avoid buying?

Also, am I okay to buy spices from the market, where i assume they will be fresher and cheaper?

thanks so much

Marrakech

Hello LaLico.

Supermarkets in Marrakech are more or less the same as in Europe and prices are similar, maybe a little bit more expensive but nothing dramatic. It is a good place to buy your groceries and also wine etc and they accept credit cards which is great.

I cannot think of anything that you should not buy...

With regards to spices, yes, they are fresher in the souks although a bit more expensive. Have a great stay!

thanks vwtouareg.

Neither myself nor my husband drink anyway so alcohol isn't a problem. I just wasn't sure what kinds of meat/veg/bread etc were available.

I'm more than happy to forgo "western" foodstuffs in favour of more typical Morroccan fare - I just wanted to make sure that I was prepared for what was available. If you see what I mean!
