I have come to this attraction several times in past years, but had to go there recently to get some African items for my friends who came visiting. The last time I came here was in 2009. The market still looked the same. Like most markets, you have to be on the alert and not wear or carry anything that... More

Plenty of shops offering various collections but then again, they sell almost the same stuffs!! Watch out, you must be clever to negotiate and make it good bargain, my stuffs was reduced... More

All i can say is its not for the faint hearted! What an incredible experience. Don't bring anything valuable and try to go with a local. bargain down (divide by 3 then meet each other half way). All the best!

You can get things you could never find anywhere else here. Everything is rather cheap if you know how to bargain a good deal, it is the most important thing here, like a ritual! Traditional clothes, shoes and accessories are amazing!

I visited with a fellow blogger and I was amazed when I got there. First of all, it's not set up like normal markets - it's so clean and very orderly. There are accessories, furniture, art work, and little knickknacks to buy. I read somewhere that there's a food section of the market, but we didn't venture that way. We... More

I write a review on this market some time back, equally the same, close your eyes to ivory everything will be great. Real reason to write again is that upon leaving Nigeria customs can give you a hard time if you have some of the wooden souvenirs. There is a law here regarding the taking out of antiques, customs take... More

This market was fascinating. There was everything you could think of to buy. We went 10.30 am and were first people there so it was nice and quiet. Think twice before you show interest in something as they will stalk and haggle you until you find a price agreeable to you both! We never went near or saw any produce... More
