Description

“Street trades are disappearing everywhere. In Marrakech, however, they are still flourishing.

Credit is due to Moulay Abdellah Nassih for the examples he has chosen and humorously described; praise is also well earned for Lawrence Mynott’s beautiful and apt illustrations. We are grateful to both.

Street trades are often indispensable. We’ll see in this book that while certain ones may make us laugh, others are definitely useful – so many of us miss the knife grinders when our cutting instruments are dull, and the porters when our luggage is too heavy!

In Marrakech they’re at every street corner. Everyone makes the best of their rituals and rules; it’s partly thanks to them that Morocco’s roots remain anchored in tradition. It’s to the credit of this country that looks bravely towards the future while remaining faithful to its past.”

– Pierre Bergé
