The Village Market at Nairobi is worth to visit, this market have a unique design with indoor & outdoor areas.
A lot of shops and different types of restaurants. There is also a Carrefour Supermarket for people who wants to do grocery or get other stuff.
I do recommend to visit this place between noon time and evening time to enjoy the place in both times and see it with the lights.

What a delightful quirky place...we visited here twice and still only managed to explore half of it. There was so much to see and do for locals as well as visitors. The design is engaging, its so clean and well cared for.

After living for over seven years in Nairobi, I discovered the Village Market by accident. I was quite impressed by the food court and all the upmarket stores. It is without a doubt the finest mall in East Africa.

I thought it is a very enjoyable place only to get a Very average shopping mall that's only long with small shops. The flagship reliable store to do your shopping is Carrefour, at the very far end from parking and is not very big for shopping and doesn't offer delivery services. The few motorcycle delivery riders available who made shopping from there easier have been chased away from the mall so the only way to get stuff is to walk all along the long boring building. Parking is in a very dark and hot basement whose sewage pipes keep breaking so prepare to find your car soaked in raw sewage.

The village market was more shopping mall and less Masai market as the photo leads you to believe. I went there twice, the first to be disappointed with what I discovered and the second to visit a specific store that had tucked tshirts aside for me based on an online inquiry. If you want the Masai market experience don’t go here looking for it.

Noisy because of incredible Big works on the roof. I’ve contacted management and said they can’t do anything about it. VM should be closed for Works while they want to have the money, the customer headache and their works. AVOID village market

There’s something about this mall that makes it stand apart from other shopping malls in terms of its overall design and layout. It’s beautiful. The decor is simply superb and each section looks different. With many options for entertainment food and shopping, it’s a must go.
Only thing perhaps I missed is a cinema.

Worth a visit

This is one of the oldest malls in Kenya. Despite being one very nice mall it has discriminations to the locals one case is to the delivery persons who comes to various restaurants inside the mall. They were chased outside without any safe parking for their bikes. So if you are ordering anything just know that it's either you get hungry or even loose your order. Losses too to the restaurants. Kindly accommodate all players in this very big mall.

I visited village market with my family in December for an excursion. It is indeed a good place when you want to spent a day out with your family. My little boys enjoyed very much being in the waters at the swimming pool. The African dishes were mouth watering made to your taste. Lastly we ended our excursion by doing shopping at the shopping mall where everything is under one roof. I would recommend village market for a family day out.

Nice place to hang out with kids as there is a pool and a slide. Some corporate bodies like banks also hold their annual parties for their young clients. There a swimming areas for adults as well.
