Food tour in the Medina of Marrakech
- Explore local food shops in Marrakech with a local guide
- Visit the spice market and become an expert
- Taste a traditional Moroccan dinner
- Dinner: in the middle of a World Heritage listed square
Embark on a real food adventure in Marrakech as you wander through the souks, sampling olives, dried fruits, nuts, pastries, and other Moroccan specialities.
We will start at the Djemaa El-Fna square, traditional center of trading, bargaining, eating, and mingling. From the square we’ll go into the labyrinth of small streets and alleys, hunting for hidden local shops selling delicious Moroccan treats. Then we will head toward the poultry/beef market. But the best is yet to come! The spice market will be our next stop, where you will become a spice guru and bring home with you all the secrets of the traditional Moroccan cuisine. From cumin to saffron, from ginger to pepper and tumeric, you will immerse yourself into a wabe of exotic smells and colours.
A visit to the souks will allow us to discover many traditional breads, perhaps try a cow hoof or sheep’s head, and stop by to try some Ghoulal.
We’ll end up in the Djemaa El-Fna square where we will enjoy a Moroccan dinner surrounded by the enchanting atmosphere of this World Heritage Site.
