Central Market

The Central Market at the edge of the medina is like a melting pot of Rabat’s old town. Local vendors offer all manner of fruit, vegetables, meat, and spices – beware of the fish smell if you're sensitive. To experience an authentic Moroccan market, this is the place to go.


Like many Moroccan cities, Rabat offers exquisite and precious arts and crafts. You will also find chic boutiques and ultra-modern shopping centres. Most of the local and international luxury boutiques are located along Avenue Mohammed V, the new city's true administrative and commercial nerve centre. You'll also find several stores in the upscale quarters like Agdal, which is particularly lively.
