If looking for semi precious stones, Art and craft pearls. This market has all. Lots of Chinese tourists buying stuff around. Shop keepers even speak the language. Lots of bargaining can be done. Stuff much cheaper than at hotels.

If you are looking for some amazing African handmade statutes, figurines, paintings then this must be the place to visit. Parking may be a bit of an issue but if you go there with your driver, then that's sorted out. This is also the place to hone your haggling & bargaining abilities. The general rule of thumb is that you... More

I live in Lagos and I am Nigerian. This is a great market for getting some local art works from Nigeria especially those native to Lagos. However it is best visited with a local person. You must know how to bargain as prices tend to be highly over stated. Rule of thumb is to cut it down by 50% and... More

Stopped at the market for something to do. Nice range of produce, wooden carvings, bags and clothes. Was hard to get into as it had rained the night before. Hard to get there without a four wheel drive. All the people will try and pull you in their stalls so it can be a little overwhelming but worth a look

The Lekki market hosts several hundreds of souvenir stalls. Here you will find paintings, wood carvings, cloths and jewelry from Nigeria and neighbouring countries. The salesmen are not too pushy, but you have to bargain till you settle for about half the price initially asked for. All taxidrivers know the place so it shouldn't be difficult to be dropped there.

Road there goes through another local market - turn off Lekki Expressway between 4th and 5th roundabouts, just before the footbridge onto dirt road. Take first left, go straight around 200m, then right. Market is about 50m on the left - walk through the red buildings to get to the main market. Negotiate hard - opening prices are 2-3 times...
