    The best thing about this market is all the people that you get to meet… Hard-working folks selling their wares and giving you a real glimpse of life in Dakar.. We visited a couple of times and enjoy walking through or seriously bargaining to buy stuff… Either way was fun!

    This is definitely the place to visit in Dakar. I like the art and the composition of the metal figures. The garden and the café are a green oasis within the busy and dusty streets of Dakar. The food in the Art Café is excellent. If you take a look at the backyard, it is possible to see the artists working and chat with them.
    I also spent 5 weeks in the Airbnb Room you can rent here. To stay here as a guest goes with the closest feeling to a family you can get abroad . But only if you like cats and dogs!

    I was excited that I was in Dakar for the monthly farmers market. The location was good and though parking was tight, I didn’t have to wait long to find a spot. I arrived around 12:30 pm. Market ran from 9am to 4pm. Entrance fee was 500 fcfa per person. There were a lot of stalls with skincare products, snacks, cookies and booths from many different restaurants. There were handicrafts, wooden puzzles made through an NGO, beautiful baskets and vases. There was a stall that sold herbs in beautiful small ‘baskets’ make of plastic. There was only I stall that had vegetables. The main reason I went was to get contact information about organic beef and chicken farms. Neither farm was represented when I got there. I was disappointed that there weren’t more selections for vegetables. I will try again next month to see if there is a better selection. The prices were a little high but considering that most of the people shopping were expats, I guess it was reasonable.

    There is no need to suffer the street markets and so called artists villages of downtown Dakar. In this small and friendly shop you will be treated with the respect that is lacking in the aggressive street traders from whose stalls you can hardly escape. Not only that, the art and craft work in Galerie Syseck'art is of far better provenance, quality and design; and surprisingly a great deal less expensive. The shop owner is friendly, calm and knowledgeable and will explain the material, the origin and other features of the wares on display. There is no pressure to buy, but I'll be surprised if you don't!

    This is a small, clean and western style mall. You can find luxury brands in it. Supermarket is very expensive. Most of the foods and beverages are imported from other countries.
