Hello,

These are the markets of Chefchaeoun. The air of Chefchaeoun can be heavy at times especially when shopping through the spice markets but lighter and fresher in the fruits and veggies sections. There are many fruit vendor stalls in the cobblestone squares of Chefchaeoun offering freshly squeezed juices in exchange for a few Moroccan dirhams.

Also the bright colored henna dyes are pretty cool. The array of colors from pink to purple to blue and yellow are used to decorate the hands and feet during celebrations such as weddings.

What I love most are the colors of the fruits that pop against the shades of blue creating a unique grocery/shopping experience for tourists but is commonplace for locals.

Until next time,

Evelina
