The Marrakech food tour program

We start Marrakech food tour this tour experience at the beautiful and legendary Djemaa El-Fna square, where trade, haggling, and encounters have taken place for nearly a thousand years. You will immediately feel the history, tradition and culture. After an initial briefing, we will walk through the small streets leading off the square.

On the way, we will stop at hidden local stalls that most tourists won’t find, to taste some of the many different versions of olives, and nibble on nuts and other typical Moroccan treats, before heading to the poultry/beef market to see how the locals shop and haggle. Tasting all kinds of food in Marrakech is a fascinating insight into local life and traditions, and with all the different types of places your guide will take during the Marrakech food tour to see many different aspects of the culture of the Marrakechis.

Next, we’ll head to one of the most popular sections – the spice section! Moroccan cuisine is known for its vibrant spices, and here you will learn how spices are used in traditional cooking, how Marrakech became such a popular place for the spice trade, and be inspired to recreate Moroccan culinary masterpieces when you return home. The spice market will totally enchant you with its exotic smells and bright colours of cumin, saffron, ginger, pepper, turmeric… We could go on, but you’d better go to Marrakech and see for yourself!

We continue our Moroccan gastronomic odyssey through the souks, where we will discover the different variants of traditional breads, learn how nomadic communities preserved meat for times of scarcity and war, perhaps taste a cow’s hoof or a sheep’s head.

Marrakech food tour will finish in the square, after seeing all the fresh ingredients from the souks and markets, we’ll enjoy a traditional Moroccan dinner amidst the hustle and bustle of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Djemaa El-Fna Square at its peak. Surrounded by people, snakes and their charmers, monkeys and their jokes, the atmosphere is hard to beat. We are sure that this experience will stay with you for a long time.

The itinerary

1 Jemaa el-Fnaa

A destination for all kinds of magic, Jamaâ El Fna Square tells the story of Morocco’s past and present through its storytellers, dancers, water sellers and snake charmers, all the while captivating its visitors with its charm, which begins in the morning and only reaches its peak in the evening

2 Riad Zitoun

The charming Riad Zitoun has several bistros with rooftop terraces, serving mint tea and European dishes with Moroccan touches. Riad hotels, housed in large old houses with courtyards, stand alongside traditional hammams and shops selling pottery, caftans and leather bags. The 19th-century Bahia Palace has intricately decorated interiors and walled gardens, while the Dar Si Siad Museum displays Berber crafts and jewellery.

3 Mellah

The narrow streets of Mellah were once home to the city’s Jewish population, as evidenced by the Lazama synagogue, with its tiled courtyard and exhibitions on Jewish life, and the peaceful Jewish cemetery of Miaara. Nearby is the lively Mellah market, with meat of all kinds and many other products, and the Bab Mellah spice souk.

4 Chez Lamine

Located in the Méchoui alley, behind the Alhambra restaurant in Jemaa el-Fnaa, is Lamine’s unmissable stall, adorned with sheep’s heads and “Tangia” simmers. The meat dishes are cooked in the ashes of the coals of the local public baths. Most people come during the day for the succulent mechoui, but the beef pots are served all day and are just as delicious. The juices that collect at the bottom of the bowl are a treat with the local bread.

5 Souk Semmarine

Considered the main artery of the souks of the Medina, the Souk Semmarine is accessible from Jemaa El Fna square, in a derb (alleyway of the Medina) bearing the same name. This name comes from the farriers who used to use this strategic place to shoe the animals of the caravaneers, while they were doing their usual shopping.

We had heard good reviews of “a taste of marrakech food tour” when we booked it, but the tour far exceeded our expectations. The tour guide was amazing. He looked after the needs of the individuals in the party extremely well, remembered everyone’s name and patiently kept regular checks that the party was all together. He was professional yet personable and very informative.
The food experiences on the tour were really varied and all amazing.
