Fez

Shopping in Fez can be phenomenal – just wandering the medina’s souks and honing your bargaining skills is an adventure. Known for exceptional leather products (look for Fassi yellow babouche shoes) and pottery, Fez’s handicrafts spans the spectrum of Moroccan creative genius – from Berber jewelry and rugs to bronze lanterns and mosaic tabletops and fountains.

Ensemble Artisanal

This government-run operation lacks the chaotic charm of medina shops, but it’s a good place to gauge prices (all of which are fixed) on Fez handicrafts. Observe craftsmen as they pound metal and carve wood into decorative vessels and elaborate doors.

Les Mysteres de Fez

Find the Belghazi Museum, then ask a local to point you in the direction of this treasure trove of Moroccan artistry, where lanterns and intricate carved boxes share space with camel skin shoes and heavy Berber jewelry.

Les Potteries de Fez

Located in the potters’ quarter, a short stroll outside the medina walls, the shops here are where most of Fez’s famed blue and white pottery is fired (note the black smoke billowing skywards).

Souk Shopping

Devote a solid day to browsing the souks along Talaa Kebira and Talaa Seghira (the medina’s main streets). Fez is legendary for the finest handmade goods in Morocco – from the typical blue and white pottery, to delicate embroidery, leatherwork, and hand-wrought bronze goods.

Terrasse des Tanneurs

If it’s leather and lush (shoes, purses, messenger bags, belts, jackets) you’ll find it here. Browse three floors of goods, then pop out on the rooftop for a view of the medina tanneries.
