Souk El Had in Agadir: the largest in Morocco

Located in the center of Agadir, the souk El Had covers an area of 12 hectares. It includes 6,000 stores arranged by product family, as well as nine doors, equipped with as many open-air car parks, where people circulate in a joyful din. It is surrounded by walls six meters high. It is the largest souk in Morocco. You can do it in about three quarters of an hour . Whether you shop there or not, its alleys rich in colors and scents are a spectacle that you must have seen, just as you must have been in the souk of Ouled Teima , very close to the Jardin aux Etoiles.

Tourists are a ready-made prey for traders in a souk. Use caution, but don't give up the pleasure of bargaining, as long as the shopkeepers don't go out of bounds! If the shopkeeper knows how to do it with his patter, we will put up with it, knowing that by his generosity we will have contributed to the family tajine of the evening ...

Living animals and decorative objects

In the souk of Agadir, tradition has its place. There are many living animals there: poultry of all kinds and colors, which will be plucked and killed in front of you. Sensitive souls refrain ! There are also more unexpected animals, such as chameleons.

To imagine the souk only as an expression of the past would be to commit an error in judgment. The Gadiris do most of their daily shopping in the souk El Had. And the latter is up to date. When it comes to clothing, you'll find the latest fashions, especially for men. Credit cards are also accepted by many merchants.

In this crisscrossed vastness, between carpets, fruits, vegetables and memories, you sometimes have to ask for directions. It is nonetheless quite easy to find beautiful decorative objects there, such as colored goatskin lamps, a whole collection of which can be found at the Jardin aux Etoiles . Moroccan artisans excel in the art of brassware. Hence an abundance of very pretty lamps and metal lanterns. However, check their quality carefully. Rightly or wrongly, those from Marrakech are known to turn into scams, insofar as they risk being dismantled quickly. In any case, this is what the artisans of Agadir claim ... and what we have also verified. So watch out for arnakech!

No poufs!

On the other hand, do not look for poufs in Berber fabrics or camel skin. There are none in the souk El Had, verification made. Those on which you can stretch out in front of the fireplace of the Salon Atlas come from Taroudant and Marrakech .

Souk El Had (which means "Sunday market") is open every day, except Monday (cleaning day).
