Vibrant, busy, pursued by vendors to buy their wares. Coming from South Africa, many of the wooden trinkets are sold all over Africa. The bolts of cloth are truly astounding, in design and colour, and if you cannot find some to take home, I would...More

This market had a lot of things for locals as well as a small tourist strip which the stall owners over priced the items excessively. For example something I purchased for 25cents in Ghana was being sold for $6 at this market.

We got a lot of beautiful things in this market. They had everything. You just walk around and if you spot what you like you price it. It's a fun experience. It's.like.any market in Africa but less rowdy than some I've been to
