Having been in Lagos for 2 years now this was my first visit to the market. The products on display are veey good the furniture and leather goods stand-out and prices (post haggling) are good. However i found it quiet intense having to explain every 5 seconds that im just looking for now - but hey - its a market.... More

Went here after reading reviews in Trip Advisor. There's a 200N charge for taxis to drop and wait for you while you look around. Lots of small stalls in an organised, mostly under cover market, selling wooden carvings, bags, jewellery, minerals etc. If you're a tourist you'll definitely find some gifts here to take home! You do need to be... More

The vegetable section is a typical african setting with open stalls and vegetables sold in baskets. But is the best place for fresh vegetables sold in retail in lagos city. The other part is the packaged/branded provisions which is a... More

Alway a great experience if you can get used to vendors constantly harrassing you trying to get your business. It can be stressful if you are not prepared for it. If you are you will really enjoy haggling for the best prices and you will then go away feeling as if you have bought many bargains and there is so... More

The road that leads to the market isn't the best. Lots of pot holes and please ensure you travel in a sturdy vehicle. The shops offer local handicraft and interesting paintings. The wooden statues are nice too. The chimes made of beads and bright and colourful and make good gifts. Don't forget to bargain. If you are a collector of... More

passed by last weekend for a browse and ended up spending 30,000N of some great big wooden statues from a guy called prince who has a shop down the back of the market. I have bought from him for more than 2 years now and always struck a deal. Hard bargaining is needed.Get there early, the place opens at 9,... More

Love this market, if you are in to your African arts and crafts, then you will love it. Hard to find, and rough road to the area, but worth the hassle in getting there. Once you are there, at least 100 stalls selling African arts, masks, furniture, crafts and statues, you can't go wrong. Remember to haggle, start with half... More
