Suuqs

Meknes, Morocco

Meknes has a very nice olive market — Morocco has some of the finest olives in the world — where olives from the region around the city, as well as other parts of Morocco, are sold.
Even if the quality is great, look out for high prices. This guy was reasonable, with 10 dh per kilo for most olives, and 12 dh for spiced olives. But just few metres from him, prices were hiked up, and 30- 40 dh per kilo was the going price.
