The city of Agadir has one of the biggest and most wonderful souks in Morocco, an authentic traditional market that perpetuates the legacy of the country’s commercial squares. Open six days a week, except on Mondays, the Souk of Agadir bears the name of Souk El Had, in memory of the time when it was open only on Sundays. Behind its adobe ramparts, immerse yourself in a timeless atmosphere and discover an abundance of goods, from the most contemporary to the most traditional.
Built in the early 1960s, after the earthquake, Souk El Had was first renovated in 1997. Now modernized with a roof and new flooring, it offers visitors a space up to standards in terms of safety and pedestrian mobility. A genuine city within the city: it spreads over 13 hectares in the center of Agadir.
Souk El Had attracts customers of all kinds. Spices, olives, honey and dates, furniture and fabrics, crafts, fashion, household equipment and tools, you can find absolutely anything at a competitive price. Being a real hive of 10,000 workers, this large market brings together many products from around the world, several hundreds of fruit and vegetable stalls, and some 3,000 businesses divided into shops and small stalls.
Fill up on vitamins and take advantage of the freshness of the local products, which taste as good as they look when you see them on display. The region of Agadir benefits from fertile soils, and fortunately, a good part of the production is traded on the local markets. Admire their colors, smell their aromas and taste their flavors, sublimated by Moroccan cuisine. Doors n° 1, 2 and 3
