This is a market i have been too very often. It is a typical market that sells the usual items you will find around Lagos. However, it is cleaner than most Lagos markets and that is a plus. The road leading to the market has...More

This market is pretty decent in size; it should have about 200 stalls and they sell from soft stone handicrafts, wood masks, bracelets, etc. to exotic animal purses and ivory (not cool.) Prices are kind of touristy, but it's still decent to buy small things....More

You will find a lot of different things to bring home for relatives and friends. But you have to bargain to get a good price.

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.

It is a great place for everyone. You may be surprised what you may eventually find in this market. The people are used to international visitors so you will have a good bargaining and maybe make a friend.

Nice market with many art and craft stands. Having seen other local markets, though, I think you can find more authentic places. Still a nice place to buy souvenirs and presents for friends and family!

Drove in to buy cooking items as I live nearby. I found them unusually expensive. Even regular items like yam, plantain, banana and paw paw were highly priced. They were also not fresh and did not deserve the high price tags.

Depends on which part of Lagos you are in. From Victoria Island or mainland, as you follow Ozumba Mbadiwe, it will lead to Lekki toll gate. Once you cross that, turn right before the 3rd round about. That enters the Lekki... More
