Welcome to the 444th Tablescape Thursday!
The place we are staying here in the Sahara before we head out to our tented camp in the desert, has the absolute worst internet I’ve encountered the entire trip. So instead of trying to create a large post sharing one of the many dinners we’ve had on our trip, I thought I’d take you on a brief trip through the Fez Market, also known as the “Soucks” for this week’s Tablescape Thursday.
The Fez Market is located in the Medina, the oldest part of Fez, Fes el-Bali, dating back to the 9th Century. Walking through the soucks is definitely overload for all the senses. The smells, the sounds, the colors come at you all at once. Much of what you see is wonderful, like this proprietor selling olives of every kind.
You’ll find all the eggs you would ever want for sale.
Morocco is one of the biggest exporter of dates, so of course we found those for sale on our visit to the market.
There’s a butcher…
And if your tastes run to the more exotic or “gourmet” you can buy a scoop or two of live snails for your dinner. We passed on the snails even though the amused proprietor offered us a whole scoop as a “gift!” Ha! 🙂
I’ll be back home for our next Tablescape Thursday, although I’m sure I’ll be suffering a major case of jet lag by then. I’m off now for a little breakfast before we take 4-wheel drive vehicles out further into the desert. Looking forward to sharing some fun pictures with you when I return!
