About the market
Accra’s largest open-air market which overflows with goods, people, scents and sounds, hustle and bustle. It is the best place to absorb the atmosphere of a West African market.
This market is similar with Balogun market in Lagos, Nigeria and a bit similar to markets in Kampala where you really can get whatever you want. It is in the centre of the city so has heavy traffic most of the time and car park is mostly full between 10 am and 5pm.
It is quite an amazing place with lots of very narrow alleyways and women walking about with huge bowls and other packages on their heads. Good place to shop for most things but very crowded most times. Get almost everything you need for your home at reasonable rate.
Come with a guide to show you the more interesting parts of the market and find some cool vantage spots for excellent photo opportunities. Plan to spend the day, there is plenty to see.
