I've been to the Lekki Market 3 times - each time I have gone I have been with a local friend of mine. I've gotten great deals on leather purses, wood carvings and jewelry. You've got to be willing to haggle and bargin and also talk story.

Lekki market makes shopping easy for both domestic and foreign Tourists and if you are just one of those curious shoppers for home decorations and accessories you will like it here. Always be security conscious of your bags and mobile phone not to attract pick pockets to you.

Usual African market Didn't see much art The meat selling area is perticularly bloody if you don't like that Axing huge sides of beef down narrow alleys You have to avoid being splashed with blood! All the same kind of stuff is for sale in Lagos Island Central

You buy an array of materials or wooded sculptures here. It is something different to do in Lagos and the price negotiating can be fun.

I live close to this place, so it's easy to forget it's there. However, every time I go there, I still get lost wandering from shop to shop. This is a great place for tourists to get great gift items to take back home. You can find locally dyed fabrics, ready-to-wear outfits for men, women and kids, great trinkets -... More

Tip: bargain at couple of shops to... More

Wish the ivory selling stalls were not there though! The vendors drive a hard bargain, but are mostly very friendly and don't harass... More

Lekki Market is a great place to support the slaughter of elephants. You will see several Lebanese and Chinese people purchasing ivory to be smuggle through the very dishonest customs agents at the airport. There are many other things to purchase, but mostly tourist crafts for a place not for tourists. I have worked in Lagos for 4 years. I... More
