  The Juice Men Of Jemaa El Fna
by 43beckos

In the centre of Jemaa El Fna Square, you will friend lots of brightly painted juice carts.

These carts supply fresh orange juice to locals and travellers alike, squeezed to order, and are amazingly cheap ( about 20p / 34 cents ), and taste great.

We were warned that the same bowl of water is ued to wash out the glasses all evening, and that this might make us ill, but we did not seem to suffer any adverse effects.

You may also be approached by a local beggar asking you to buy them juice. They will usually give you an old water bottle so they can take it away to drink later, and at these prices how can you refuse.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
