We tried to locate this place in 2010 but not successful! This year however - I did finally find it! It's a great place to get authentic african arts & crafts, from masks to paintings, wood carvings and so on and forth! I could easily spend 3 hours without even noticing it! It's a good place to practice your bargaining skills too :-)! Got a few masks, a painting and some bangles!

I was told that to help people find it they must give the right name and direction! It's known as the Lekki (Beach) Market. The address is Oba-Elegushi International Market at the Jakande State! It's right after the first round-about at the Lekki-Epe Express Way!

Definitely worth a visit!

Here are couple of art dealers you can contact:

This market is a must visit when in Lagos state. Perfect place to get all sorts of African Fabrics, souvenirs, affordable artworks and masks from different cultures and tribes. Bring your bargaining power when you do visit.

Lekki market a must visit if you need to deck up your living room, bathroom, bedroom...any room. HEAVY BARGAIN SKILL is must and lots OF FAKE TOO, if you need to buy any thing here be cautious. What do you get here..pearls better than Hyderabad ones, wooden artifacts, Ebony wood artifacts, painting of all kinds, painting made exclusively 100% from butterfly wings, terracotta artwork, metal artwork, paintings made from horn and bones of bovine animals, water color and oil paintings, animal skin and bags,.etc made from animals...You will even see skin of Lions, Cheetah and Crocodile among other wild species. Clothing, Wine and hard liquor, vegetables and fruits, plastic day to day items...first timer can easily spend like 2 to 3 hours here. Shop keepers are cooperative and make you feel safe from anti social elements. The more polite and respectful you are, chances are more of getting a bigger better deal. Be very careful as to what they say and what you end up buying, especially Pearls. Parking too is safe

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 would not recommend it for any tourism. Lekki is a place to get cheap (cost & quality) souvenirs for family if you have a financial reason to be in Lagos or exploit elephant poaching. Those who come to Lagos for tourism should fire their travel agent. There are many safer places in Africa, which can give a much richer experience.

Overall a good day out. Have been a few times. Not a good idea to go during the rainy season as the road up to the market is awful unless your in a 4/4. A great experience but shop around, what ever price they ask for offer half then haggle after that. Take water with you. Be careful when children ask to be your escort as there can be 4 or 5 kids showing you round and expect to be paid, better to wander round in your own, it's not rocket science and its safe.

This is a tyipcal market lined with small shopes more than 300 selling all types of local stuff.
Approach road to the market is very bad,better to take a SUV.Carry your own water bottle .
Once you are in,you will lose track of time .Market offers wide variety of pearls,paintings,cloths,arttcles made from animal skin,ivory,wood.
Be prepared to be a tough bargainer.One can even exchange money at reasonably good rates if you run out of local currency.
Overall a nice place to spend 2-3 hrs even with the basic infrastructure the market offers.
Weekend is ideal time to visit to get a good deal.

Situated near Lekki beach, this market is best known for the souvenirs and artifacts and movie CD's that can be purchased here. you can fine unusual things such as REAL leopard/Lion skin and jewelry made of pure Ivory, bags, slippers, rugs etc made of real alligator/snake skin (for people that don't have any reservations about such), precious uncut stones such as emerald etc can also be bought here. The food section is best known for its huge variety of Chinese fruits and vegetables. Most Chinese restaurants in Lagos buy their produce here. All sorts of artifacts like traditional Nigerian Benin bronze sculptures can also be bought here. Paintings and carved furniture etc. Affordable great place to visit.

I went a couple of times in June to Lekki Market and picked up quite a few bargains. All the usual toursit type stuff was there but I was particularly impressed with the range of paintings on offer.
Make sure you use one of the boys who are guides and tip them well. They are a huge help in guiding you through the maze of stalls.
I had a local friend of mine on hand who took charge of the bartering. As a previous reviewer said, when they are about to cry that is when you have beat them down enough!

Something we will always remember Nigeria with are the gifts and souvenirs we were able to buy at affordable prices. Don’t be afraid to haggle, it is expected !!
