Shopping in Morocco | What to Buy in Morocco and How Much to Pay - Hippie In Heels (2022)

I won’t lie, the thing I was most excited to do on my last trip? Shopping in Morocco. If you can’t tell, I enjoy shopping and have gone on some of the most amazing shopping tours in India.

Before I went I hadn’t researched what to buy in Morocco and how much to pay. It would have also been helpful to know which city I could find things at better prices, SO I’m going to share what information I gathered over my little under 2 weeks in Morocco.

Morocco is a really easy trip if you’re visiting Europe, especially if you’re in Spain! Check flights on Kiwi and see if you can snag a cheap one and hop over.

You can always take a tour to make traveling easier (and to free up some mental energy for haggling). GAdventures has some longer tours and Viator has some smaller tours.

Definitely get travel insurance just in case! I always recommend World Nomads.

To be on the safe side, and, of course, to save some money, take out cash beforehand. Morocco uses the Dirham, but euros and US dollars are accepted.

Just know, shopping in Morocco is NOT like India

I have shared about the hassling we had inFes and how aggressive some shop owners were. It’s not quite like India. In India, if I am lied to (saying something in copper when I’m not dumb and can see it is brass…) I say, “No, you’ve told me a lie this is brass.” They cop to it. In Morocco, they flip out on you and actually go nuts yelling at you and will deny to the death. Don’t bother or waste energy. Just walk away from people who are outright lying too much. Here are some tips on haggling in markets

Leather Poufs

There are many varieties of leather and some are terrible. You can get camel,goat, or sheep. Some are very thin and poor quality. You’ll have to make sure you get the good one. You can do this by feeling for yourself. Don’t just take their word for it.

There are usuallytwo different sizes. I paid $14 for a small size and $20 for a large. When you buy together you can get even better deals.

Rugs

This is the biggie! It’s what people come to Morocco for. The big white rugs are from wedding ceremonies, but not often antique as you might be told. They make them look aged. For a very large beautiful white fringe sequin rug the best deal we got was $60 on one in Fes.

We had people actually yelling at us and calling us liars when we tried that price in Marrakesh.

Often when I was interested in a patterned rug but not enough to buy, they would take the price down to $40 when they had said 4,000 Euro to start with.

The rugs are made into pillow covers, both the white sequin and the patterned ones. I spent about $12 on two patterned ones. You can get them for $10 if you buy more.

Baskets

Baskets are AMAZING here. I bought 3 large ones with sequins and 2 medium size ones. For the medium, I paid $6 and for the large sequin, I paid $14. I didn’t buy all these together, so got these rates even with buying just one. Like everything on this list, it takes sometime to negotiate and get the going rate.

Pom Pom Clutches

They had these little burlap looking clutches big enough to fit a Kindle inside. They come in some amazing colors (mint green, peachy pink, mango orange) on them with pom-poms, tassels, and trimmings. I got them for $3 a piece. Why the eff I didn’t buy more it’s BEYOND me… maybe because there are so many things to buy in Morocco!

Etched Copper

These were pretty expensive, as copper usually is. They engrave and hammer brass, copper, bronze, and aluminum plates and cups. Anything really! They will sometimes lie about what the metal is. It’s pricey, heavy, and I didn’t personally want anything except small copper cups. Turns out, I can get them much cheaper in India and so I have.

Leather Slippers

You can get the leather slippers you see all around at least for $6 or less, as I got mine for that price. They are super soft and have sequins on them. You’ll find a lot of different colors, and they’re all quite comfortable.

Argan Oil

This comes from roasted seeds which are grown in southern Morocco. You can get argan oil anywhere. I’m sure you’ve heard of Moroccan Oil and similar hair brands, so you can get this straight from the source. It is very cheap per bottle but beware a lot is fake and just veggie oil. Buy it at the pharmacy!

Perfume

Like here in India, they can make copies of famous perfumes at a cheaper rate. I didn’t enquire the price on this but imagine it would be very inexpensive.

Lanterns / Lights

Couldn’t find a photo of the famous lights, but did find one of the cloth ones. Oh, man did I want a brass lantern! I wanted a sitting one, hanging one, wall mounted ones… but they are heavy and the prices just weren’t good. Small ones for the wall were getting down to a low price of $20 when I know in India they are less. I skipped this.

Tea sets

You’ll drink a lot of mint tea here. It’s often served in a tiny glass with some detail etched in. You can buy the sets. I didn’t ask price but again, it’s just glass so shouldn’t be much.

Curated shops

So, you’ll see some of these curated shops that are selling the best bits of everything. The prices are a lot higher. I avoid these. I would rather look myself. The shops are organized and so inviting, but definitely do some shopping first before buying in these.

Moroccan Spices

Are you surprised to hear the spices can be fake? Saffron especially. I’m not into spices, but of course, this is a huge souvenir for some.

Ceramic Pots

Tagines are the famous food here, and they are served in a pot you’ll come to recognize. You can buy it of course! It’s only terracotta I think? At least it looks like it.

If you buy them glazed, but beware it could be with lead paint and if you heat it and eat out of it / drink out of it… well you know- NOT GOOD!

The small ones that are painted are great for sugar or even a butter dish.
