Rissani is an optional stop on your Morocco desert trip with TUnique Desert Tour. It is home to the desert’s first Souk or market.
The last-mentioned includes four sections, the first of which is where you may buy spices. Caravans from the south of Morocco used to bring spices from India to trade in the south, and Rissani’s Souk was where they frequently stopped to trade dates for their spices. That is to say, most of what you may find there has migrated from the African nations of South Morocco.
The second section is for purchasing and selling meat, seafood, and so forth.
The last section of the Souk, known as the Festival of Donkeys, Sheep, and Cows, is particularly intriguing.
