Any special food for Eid Al-Adha?

One of two main Islamic holidays is currently in progress. There's a great new market/deli next to one mosque. I'm wondering if there are any special foods related to this holiday.

This article writes

"Every Muslim country and culture has its own traditions that surround Eid Al-Adha. In Morocco, sweets and cookies are prepared in advance for the special day"

So what other foods should I look for. What types of sweets and cookies are unique to this holiday?

This was a nice article about the combining of Thanksgiving and Eid Al-Adha in 2009.

It doesn't get specific on foods. Was Friday the last day of this? If I go to the market Saturday or Sunday will it be over food-wise for this holiday?
