The Mellah market is organized at the heart of the Jewish neighborhood in the southern part of the medina of Marrakech. It is one of the poorest neighborhoods of the city, and the streets are not paved. There is lots of activity and sometimes confusion, people hurrying down the street; it is very interesting to take a walk and explore the shopping streets.
The Mellah, the Jewish Quarter, has always been a neighborhood of exchanges. The Jews brought salt, spices, and gold from other countries, products that the Morrocans didn't have in their traditional markets. Nowadays there are almost no Jews in the neighborhood, but they are still selling these products.
