Thursday Suuq

Tiznit, Morocco

Every Thursday the ambulating suuqs of this region comes together in Tiznit, making up the largest market within miles. While such markets are exotic to visitors, they are really just a necessary part of everyday life.
Of course, shopping is considered as fun here as everywhere else, but there is a pragmatic touch to it all, this is really among the better places to buy everything from new clothes to vegetables.
And that is what makes places like this a treasure for the rest of us: it is real!
