Town market

Casablanca, Morocco

Right in from the long Boulevard Muhammad 5, you will find the Marche Central of Casablanca. The place is a small but high-quality version of the traditional suuqs of Morocco, and everything is aiming at the needs of the locals. And that is a thing that secures good standards.
The Marche Central has vegetables, meat, all kinds of sea food, as well as handicrafts. On the top picture you see live turtles. Turtle soup should therefore be an option for those visiting Casablanca — the sale of turtles for food is prohibited in many Western countries.
