Communal oven in the Mellah, Marrakesh

MARRAKESH, MOROCCO - November 16 2017 - Workers bake bread at a communal oven in the Mellah. Communal ovens - or ‘ferranes’ - are collectively shared by communities and are found at the heart of Medinas all across Morocco. Locals pay a small sum to bake bread and other foods like roast chickens and sardines in the large fire oven, which also bake breads and pastries in bulk to be sold around the Medina. The ovens are often connected to and heat the water for the local hammams (public baths) at the same time. Mellah, Marrakesh Medina, Morocco
