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

This is a big market with lot of options from artificial jewelry, pearls, wooden products and leather. I like the pure leather products and some of dem would actually make customized products for you on special order. You need to be expert at bargaining else you will end up paying a huge amount. Tip: bargain at couple of shops to... More

A bustling market with a wide variety of items makes for fun outing. You will find the usual wood carvings as at most African markets, but also more unusual traditional artifacts, paintings, pottery, jewellery and even furniture. 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

Though we have been in Lagos for nearly two years, never had the opportunity to visit Lekki Market, which is in Victoria Islands, a posh Lagos neighborhood. It is indeed what we had heard about..a place for all types of pearls, garnet etc., and you can see many foreigners flocking in for shopping. This apart, one can get good wooden... More

We bought fabulous things here. All our take home presents came from this excellent market. It was really difficult to find and we tried several turnings before our driver found the right one. The road is truly awful and if our daughter hadn't been there before we would never have recognised it. When we first got out of the car... More
