Marjane or Acima: Where do I buy wine & beer?
Big supermarkets in the Nouvelle Ville (taxi ride from th Madina)
Marjane being the bigger of the 2
What to buy: If you do not want to spend a fortune on alcohol in the few licensed places in the medina
(e.g. Mezzanine, Riad Fes, Riad Alkantara) then jump in a petit taxi for ca DH12 - 20 and buy some bottles of wine to take back to your hostel or riad.
Most places will let you drink on their terrasse as long as you do not over do it.
Be aware alcohol is still "forbidden" in the medina, so be sure to carry it back in a black carrier bag or covered up in some way.
It's all about dscression, even if most can guess what is in that black bag.
What to pay: Local wine - Gerrouane is the best choice be it red, white or Gris. Bottle DH 30 - 45

everywhere...: sugar, tea, coca cola...
There are few streets in old Fez
that do not have many shops.
The basic shop is the tiny grocery store, where basic commodities like sugar,
tea, tins and Coca Cola can be bought.
Often there will be shops selling goods needed by the local craftsmen.
In slghtly wider streets, the more typical touristic shop is found.
But even this will often have a good
part of its money coming
in from local customers
