I came here in 2013 with a big group of friends and enjoyed myself thoroughly. It was rather daunting as a small person with a big bag in a very large crowd where we were warned about pickpockets but luckily nothing happened. There was so much to see from clothes to jewellery to hand made instruments and bags. The colours,... More

Though you shouldnt be affraid of people as it is a very crowded place, it is a must see! Especially the Fetisji department was amazing and if you ask for some explaination they are very willing to tell you everything they know. And if you want to buy fabrics or beads, it is the best place in town.

Getting lost in the Kejetia open market is a must! The sheer size and number of people can be a bit overwhelming at first and once in it took almost 2 hours to find my way out again! But there is nothing else like it; hundreds upon hundreds of cramped alleys and booths from everything to clothes, jewellery, paintings, spices,... More

If you are going along to the market for the first time then getting a guide is a wise idea. We went with a lady called Comfort (arranged through the Four Villages Inn). There is a huge amount to see in the market and you could spend hours getting lost in it. The fish/ meat area is not advised if... More

Kejetia is a very big market with some modern parts with banks and big shops and another traditional part with tables and shelves etc... it is always crowded and very noisy. Traders keep on shouting and hurling instruments to attract customers. There is everything you need buy in a market and even more.... The market is always extended to roadside... More

Too clustered, the shops are too close to each other. Vehicles hoot at anytime which makes the market too noisy. Sellers advertising their products by shouting out the the product names making the market noisy.

we have read that this is one of the biggest market in the whole western africa. it's so messy and crowded and busy but it's worth a visit if u wanna live a bit of african style. we also read that it's quite dangerous but we strolled aorund with our cameras and nobody has ever bothered us.

The market is a very dynamic place with a lot of activities, it is quite extensive and could be approached from the teaching hospital and cultural center. Souvenirs are quite affordable and you get to choose from a wide variety. the experience of a bustling city center is a climax for a conference trip

This is an amazing place to buy food, souvenirs, material and so much more. Busy, congested and a real feel of a market in west Africa. There is lots to see and do. if you are purchasing something, don't be afraid to negotiate. If the stall keeper is asking for 50 Ghanian Cedis negotiate it for 20! The people are... More
