Grocery Shopping in Morocco

I just got back from Essaouira’s souk, where the locals shop. I bought:

  • 6 eggs.
  • A whole chicken breast (meaning, uh, all the white meat on the bird). The butcher pulled it from his refrigeration unit–a box of water.
  • A mango, 6 plums and 4 apples.
  • Some carrots, an onion and a green pepper.
  • Some couscous.
  • A couple baguettes.

All for 75 dirhams, or just under CAN $10. A little cheaper than Urban Fare, methinks.
