Taliouine is a Berber town in the province of Taroudant, in Morocco, in the region of Souss-Massa; region of rural populations of the Anti-Atlas. The village is a large producer of saffron and its production is very important. There is a local cooperative where you can buy the red gold directly, as they name it. Since 2007, there is the International Safran Festival which helps to promote this production every year.
If you visit the area you will find sellers of saffron next to fields and you will have the opportunity to walk on the fields, drink saffron tea and of course, buy fresh saffron directly from the producer.
This year’s international festival will be held from October, 20th to November, 15th 2017.
