Moroccan markets, Moroccan roll

The Moroccan handicraft market is at St. Anne's Square this week from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m., with the last day on Saturday 5th May. The 20 or so tents are crammed full of - to my eyes-  exotic looking carpets, mysterious musical instruments, lamps and more. I am unsure if the musician here is playing a ginbri, a lotar or something else. Any ideas?

It really is wonderful to see quality examples of North African goods being sold by authentic Morrocan traders. The Morrocan markets are on a tour until 16 June and next go to Leicester, Lincoln, Leeds, Liverpool, Edinburgh and Derby 


  1. Very interesting, I would love to have a close look at the musical instruments!An Aladin lamp would be fantastic as a special souvenir!
    Enjoy the Morrocan market, hugs

  2. How great is that?! A Morrocan market on your doorstep :-) Happy browsing....and bargaining too.

  3. I love your Chinatown as well.
    Great photos.

  4. Oh now you see, the carpets would be a real temptation for me, I can't resist a hand made carpet!!

  5. I walked the streets of Morocco years ago when a lad in the Navy. There were many of these merchants plying their wares. Some beautiful goods, too!

  6. Wonderful where alike is possible.

    Please have a good Friday.

  7. What a wonder to have so near! Lovely items, so unique and beautiful!

  8. It's always nice to have easy access to other cultures!
    Vive la difference!
