Miss Haberdash sends a postcard....

Chefchaouen is set high in the Rif Mountains, market day brings shoppers to the ciudad nueva for a bargain, you can even purchase a goat!

Headscarves on display, Chefchaouen

Shoppers, Chefchaouen
On market day the local farmers arrive to sell their produce. The women wear woollen blankets in red and white vertical stripes tied at the waist, over a skirt and leggings. A straw hat decorated with pom poms in primary colours, and a towel set off the look. It's a crazy ensemble that just about works!

Market Day, Chefchaouen
