Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very ceowded souk. If it was not so popular it would not have been this way. This market in the medina has lots of varieties of just about everything you will need. I has from shoes, clothes, restaurants, vendors selling dried fruits, meat, and fish...just about everything. It can look a little bit dirty and clustered but if your goal is shopping and bargaining, then this is the place for you.What i didnt like was the motorbikes were always zinging through this area so I had to watch my feet and always be on alert. Other than that this, I had fun.

this market always comes up on anything related to marrakesh, which i guess makes sense for it being a unique must-see if you have literally never been to a night market in your life before. do yourself a favor and go to a night market in Taiwan, or any night market in Asia. Those are MUCH better, and no one tries to harass or scam you to boot. this place isn't even unique to morocco/marrakech; if you've been to the souks/medina/marketplaces, it's basically that. the wares are the same, there are just more food stalls, it's even more crowded, there is more animal abuse (eg the snakes and monkeys and other animals kept on leash to "perform") and there is even more harassment and scams.

everyone knows by now vendors will ignore your nos and refusals and follow you around, but my baby cousin was followed around several times by male vendors sexually harassing her, touching her hair and getting into her personal space. you can't even stop and look at/think about buying anything or eating anywhere, you just want to keep walking to get away from them! SKIP THIS ENTIRELY unless you're the kind of person who likes to be followed and harassed, otherwise go to literally any other night market in the world, its like this but better, cleaner, and vendors leave you alone and let you actually enjoy the market and the products there at your own pace.

A busy, noisy, and crowded square in the middle of the Marrakech Medina. It is full with local vendors, music, horse carriages, restaurants and cafes, monkeys and snakes, motorbikes, jugglers, money-exchange places, and people from everywhere. It could be overwhelming in the evenings, but it is not to be missed. I had meals at Zeytoun, L'Addresse and L'Argana. This place is near to local attractions, the big mosque, the souks, and hotels/riads.

Visited this place as was recommended by a friend and the hotel we stayed in. We took a shuttle bus from the hotel. We presumed we’d be dropped around the square, we were dropped off ( I guess where the drivers friends had taxis) we were given no directions as to where we needed to go, and was hassled to take a taxi. There were 2 other couples from our hotel, they got directions up on their phone , took about ten minutes to walk there, with them. We arrived later in the afternoon, as was told you need to see the square during the day and night time . As the atmosphere apparently is amazing !
Well I wouldn’t go that far, first thing we witnessed was the snakes and his charmer , the snakes were sat up even when music wasn’t played, monkeys chained up around their necks, on metal leads, they were pulled back when they wanted to walk, some of the monkeys were pulling back on the leads , one was dressed in a football kit, one in a tuxedo and another in a dress! With cages the size of a cat carrier! Was so sad to see!
Mopeds/motor cycles coming from every direction, even down little side alleys, speeding pass you. Very dangerous ! Lots of fruit juice stalls, and women offering henna tattoos, numerous people walking around with cases of sunglasses. The shops and stalls sold exactly the same things, hand bags, football shirts, cheap bracelets You’d get hassled as soon as they saw you! Within the hour we left wasn’t staying around to see the square at night!
On the way to find a taxi, there were so many horses standing around waiting for people to get on their carriages, they all looked underweight, majority of them stood with a foot up! Every person with their horses begging us to have a ride 150 Dhm for an hour , around £10 for an hour ! Declined them all, I wasn’t paying for the poor horses to ride me around for an hour in the heat ! We went to find a taxi, 2 people asking for us to get into their taxi, we said no thanks and went to the person who was sitting in their taxi, was alot cheaper, as we went to get In the taxi , one of the other drivers was blocking the door so we couldn’t get in , because he wanted us to get in his taxi for more money . On the way back to the hotel in the taxi, see a thin donkey, tied up to a wall. Looked like he couldn’t even stand properly was leaning against the wall with his mouth wide open, wasn’t even sure it was alive !!
I wouldn’t recommend visiting ! Was not enjoyable what so ever !

This is a one of a kind experience that changes depending on the time of day. Early in the day there are the snake charmers and monkey handlers looking for tourists to fill their coffers. The scene most of the time is like a continuous three ring circus. Later the food stalls take over the evening and the crowd begins to build. Take a food tour to get the full effect of the stalls. The sound of locals playing music is ever present.

We enjoyed our day in the famous square, taking in the atmosphere, the culture and some beautiful stalls. We stopped for drinks and really enjoyed parts of the market. The reason for the star rating was, we didn’t feel entirely safe and at times felt harassed which tainted our day slightly. We are seasoned travellers so know the standard does and donts when travelling to any country, kept our bags close and walked away if we ever felt harassed in any way. Otherwise, we had a great day.

You cannot avoid walking through this square. There is animal abuse (snakes and monkeys) and there are also shady food stalls and a lot of commercial junk (not local).

Advice: walk over it quickly and then avoid it!

Any time of the day is interesting for watching busy life on the great square. Fruit juices and nuts are sold from the colourful high stands and the open air food court is assembled every evening wih long benches to serve food cooked from fresh ingredients on open fire.
