You find all kind of artifacts and local stuff ranging from clothes, bangles, souvenirs. The market is a bit unorganised, but you find everything you are looking for to remind you of the different cultures of the Nigerian people

If you are looking for a bunch of trashy souvenirs to buy this is the place to go. It's also the place to go if you want to bug random animals that are caged up and tortured. Then again it's a typical market where you have lots of sellers and buyers in an ambiguous location. In all honesty, there are... More

Love this place. Full of local talent and wonderful pieces. Haggling met with smiles but be prepared to be approached constantly. Fabrics, furniture and art my favourite things here. No toilets. Can be muddy.

Excellent market for buying all sorts of Nigerian Arts, Crafts, Fabrics, Leatherware, Carvings etc, Be ready to haggle and negotiate like a pro to get good bargains. The market also has a section for fresh vegetables and fruits. Relatively safe but like any market you need to keep your money safe and your bag in front of you

One of the top places to visit in Lagos. Full of character and interesting things to see and buy. From art and antiques to fruit and veg. The stall holders are friendly and helpful and are willing to barter the prices. However, just beware of the flock of young boys who greet you as you arrive who want to be... More

Hard to find, down a horrible dirt road, hidden behind local market, is a very large artisan market. It's not well marked, our local driver had to ask several times for where it was located. When w did arrive I didn't believe it and walked into the area before it changed to art. It's worth the trip not only do... More

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

have visited this number of times though of late the frequency has reduced. The market now divided into two sections. 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
