Fodor's Expert Review Chez Makki

Essaouira Other Specialty Store

The five Makki brothers have taken over their father's herbalist business and turned it into an empire. Several of the shops on Place Marché aux Grains and in the spice souk across the road are run by them. They know their stuff and are happy to explain which spices are used in which recipes and the difference between real and fake saffron over a pot of royal tea. They also sell a range of solid perfumes, argan-oil products, and ceramics.
