Sunday Souk in Guigou - Photo Essay

Click images to enlarge

Guigou is a town in Boulemane Province, around two hours by car from Fez. Although it has a population of some 8,ooo, that number is boosted every Sunday when the weekly souk takes place

Locals from the surrounding villages crowd into the souks, to purchase farm equipment, clothing, household goods, fresh fruit and vegetables, meat and spices. Similar souks are held in more than 800 country villages and towns in Morocco, on different days. They are easy to find - follow the line of vans, and colourfully dressed locals heading for what is, for many, the highlight of their week.
