Visit to the very lively souk of Ouled Teima

Guests of our rental riad should at least once during their stay visit the souk of Ouled Teima, called the Municipal Market. We keep the fault of the orthographer, for the sake of preserving the local color ... Reached by car in about ten minutes from the Jardin aux Etoiles, this vast covered market beats to the rhythm of daily life.

On ne s'attendrait pas forcément à en trouver dans un souk comme celui-ci, et pourtant...

Particularly lively on Thursdays, the souk of Ouled Teima is a reflection of deep Morocco, made of modernity, and above all of traditions. You can find food there: butchers, bakeries, greengrocer shops, but also household items and specialties of all kinds, including electronics.

The urban municipality of Ouled Teima has some 70,000 inhabitants. Its population has grown significantly in recent decades, keeping pace with the needs of the citrus and vegetable farms located all around the city. This is to say if the souk is frequented!

The garden of Morocco is exhibited

A visit to the Municipal Market allows you to realize the validity of the reputation of Houara, the old name of Ouled Teima still used. The garden of Morocco, which extends to the southwest to the neighboring region of Chtouka Aït Baha, is exhibited here in all its fullness: carrots, potatoes, turnips, eggplants, peppers, all kinds of peas, as well as olives, interpreted in all flavors and colors. Lemons and, depending on the season, oranges, grapefruits, mandarins, bananas, strawberries color the stalls in abundance.

Vegetables and fruits are cheap here and their freshness is indisputable. They must be given preference over products that are found, more expensive and less good, in the supermarkets of Agadir.

Thursday is the day of the big market, which brings together the inhabitants of neighboring villages. On this day, there is still more to see (and endure, given the traffic jams caused by the crowds).

Caution

Tourists and European residents are not uncommon in the souk of Ouled Teima, and they are well received. However, caution should be exercised. The display of a supposedly well-stocked wallet can, for example, arouse some envy. Women will dress in a non-provocative manner.

The souk of Ouled Teima has two or three fish stalls. Opened in the summer of 2014, the Municipal Market dedicated exclusively to fishery products greatly increased the choice available.
Located not far from the main market, this souk brings together a dozen merchants, in better conditions of freshness and packaging. We therefore find croaker, swordfish, saint-pierre, to name a few, and of course sardines, which are one of our dogs' favorite dishes! On the other hand, seafood, little known to the average Moroccan, is very rare. We just discovered squid.
The goods arrive every morning from Agadir. On the price side, it is obviously very reasonable compared to European levels.
