This is a unique opportunity to visit the home of a local and explore traditional culture and cuisine. Meet Chamsi at her home in the Hay El Hana, an upscale neighborhood in Casablanca. After a refreshing drink and getting to know each other, head out to visit the local market. Chamsi will help you navigate the market, which can be overwhelming to explore on your own. She’ll show you where she buys her fresh produce, take you to the meat market (not for the faint of heart but a true, local experience!), and show you the spices that are on offer. Chamsi can help you do a bit of shopping if you’re searching for a certain ingredient. Once your market experience is complete you’ll head back to Chamsi’s home by car to get cooking!
Please note that since Friday is a prayer day, the Friday morning market might not be as active as usual and some stalls might be closed. The evening Friday market tour is not offered.
