Marrakesh will leave you cursing carry-on restrictions, especially in the medina. Be selective, chat before you begin bargaining for items you’re sure you want and buy only from shopkeepers who are pleasant in return – that way, you’ll have a great story to accompany your scores, and won’t wind up hot and bothered in the souqs. No matter how you’re faring elsewhere in the souqs, you can count on retail highs from boutiques selling items made by local cooperatives and with recycled materials, supporting fair trade and local nonprofits - and prices at these stores are fair and fixed. Good bargainers can get better deals on traditional Marrakshi crafts in the medina, but for a wide selection, it’s worth checking out Ensemble Artisana and Marcheé Ibn Toumert in the Ville Nouvelle. Upscale fixed-price boutiques for gifts, fashion and household linens also line Rue de la Liberté and intersecting Rue Vieux Marrakshis in Guéliz.
