Location of Western Sahara

Western Saharan cuisine comprises the cuisine of Western Sahara, a disputed territory in the Maghreb region of North Africa, bordered by Morocco to the north, Algeria to the extreme northeast, Mauritania to the east and south, and the Atlantic Ocean to the west.

Food is primarily imported into Western Sahara, as minimal rainfall in the territory inhibits agricultural production.[1] Indigenous sources of food include those derived from fishing and nomadic pastoralism.[1][2] The labor and business in these indigenous provisions of foods are also a primary contributor of income for the territory's population, and are among the primary contributors to the economy of Western Sahara.[1][2]

Some fruits and vegetables are grown in oases that are scattered within the territory.[2]

As of 2012, all economic activity and trade in Western Sahara is governed by the government of Morocco.[2]
