town, north-central Morocco. The town is located between the imperial cities of Rabat and Meknès, at the edge of the Moroccan upland plateau. It is a market centre for the local Zemmour Amazigh (Berbers) (see Berber). To the north of Khemisset lies a sandy plateau with commercially exploited cork oak and eucalyptus forests, while the town itself is situated in an area that is intensively cultivated with cereals (mostly wheat) and citrus fruits and in which sheep are raised. The Zemmour Amazigh are noted for their mats and carpets made from European dwarf fan palm fibres and wool and for their carved wooden objects. Pop. (2004) 105,088.
