The cafe was a popular meeting place for spys in World War II, and also boasts literary connections, being a favorite watering hole for the likes of Tennessee Williams, Jean Genet and Paul Bowles.

Today the Grand and Petit Soccos are more scruffy city squares than markets. There are lots of stalls and shops clustered around the Soccos though, with a wide arrange of Moroccan merchandise on sale. The Grand Socco is just outside the Medina, the Petit Socco within.
