World’s Best Street Markets: Two from Africa
SOUKS OF MARRAKECH, MARRAKECH, MOROCCO
A souk refers to a North African Berber market. Marrakech’s 18 souks , selling everything from hand woven Berber rugs to silver teapots , are the oldest in all of Morocco.
KEJETIA MARKET, KUMASI, GHANA
Even in the world’s most chaotic markets, there’s usually still a method to the madness. Kejetia Market in Kumasi, Ghana is the largest in all of West Africa, but even here, each row of stalls is organized by profession or product. This row of tailors is located adjacent to a row of stalls selling wax batik and kente fabric.
