How bazaar is that?

THE city centre will be full of the bazaar later this week, even more than usual.

The Moroccan Market of Handicraft, which is touring various cities and towns in the UK, snakes its way into Liverpool from 22 to 25 September.

It will feature 40 traditional large, colourful Berber tents as stalls with authentic Moroccan traders selling an array of products including leather goods, handmade rugs, furniture, pottery and ceramics, clothing, lamps, mirrors, jewellery, perfume, as well as food.

Traditional Gnawa music will be played at intervals,  it says here.

The market is operated by Aziz Afkir and supported by the Moroccan Embassy. It has been brought to Liverpool by Geraud Markets Liverpool Ltd (GMLL) the Council’s Markets partnership.

 The Lord Mayor, Councillor Frank Prendergast will officially open the market on 22 September in a ceremony attended by a delegation from the Moroccan Embassy.

Councillor Tim Moore, cabinet member for the environment, said; “We have been trying to extend the range of markets available to Liverpool shoppers and this market will present something very different to anything we have seen in the city.

“It promises to be very colourful with goods on sale not available from anywhere else. The goods are authentic, with nearly all of them hand made in small workshops and community cooperatives.

“It is going to be an unmissable experience.”

*Moroccan Market of Handicrafts: Sept 22-25, Williamson Square, Liverpool.
