Moroccan Market

Hoi!
I'm new to the forum. My husband and I just moved here (to Zurich) from Florida. Does anybody know of a Moroccan market here?

what product are you looking for? Depending on what it is, it could be found in any oriental grocery/shop.

Have you tried Marakech? Jokes aside, it would be helpful if you could mention some of the products you intend to buy at a Moroccan market...as a market like that per se doesn't exist in Switzerland.

Re: Moroccan Market

If you're prepared to travel to Basel, there is a Moroccan/oriental shop in Gundeli that does decorations, lamps, gifts etc.. If you're talking about Moroccan food, you will find the French supermarkets just across the border usually have the best selection for their North African customers.

Re: Moroccan Market

Thank you everyone!
Actually, it's my husband who was looking for a place to buy preserved lemons and quality pine nuts.
Not that I wouldn't mind crossing the border into France or traveling to Basel but is there someplace I can buy these ingredients in Zurich?

Re: Moroccan Market

Hi Margolhill, and welcome to the EF.

Keep an eye out on the "social events" - EF member Swisspea does a "Shopping the World" tour in Zürich every couple of months. These tours are great to introduce you to the various ethnic grocery stores in Zürich, and afaik she will also take requests for stops at stores from specific geographic regions.

Sorry I can't help with your specific questions re shopping, as I don't live in Zürich - but as MrVertigo said, these products can be found in any Oriental grocery shop, or probably also in Globus/Jelmoli.
