Berber markets are always divided into sections of beef, vegetables, dry goods, clothes, furniture, barbers, goats, donkeys, used products, and just about everything else you might picture, everything complete with the lurid colors and smells you’d anticipate from a weekly Berber market in a Berber village like asni or Amezmize.
