Visit to the Souk

Life in the mountains relies upon the purchase & sale of provisions in the nearest weekly market or “souk”. The souk also acts as a social occasion to villagers from far-flung communities who meet to share news.

Kasbah Angour’s local souk is held on a Tuesday in the village of Tahanaout just 5km away. The souk experience is quite unlike shopping in a Western market and is an excellent introduction to the Moroccan Berber way of life.

Our guided visits to the Tuesday Tahanaout souk by car are typically in the morning with the opportunity to walk back. The souk visit can also be combined with an excursion by car to Sidi Fares, Oukaimeden or the Ourika Valley (see Mountains by Car excursions). If not staying on a Tuesday, no need to miss out, just enquire about visiting the Saturday Asni souk.
