not as big as I had expected, but still worth to stroll along the street with all the flower shops in Douala.

We live in Cameroon and each time we return home we go to this market to buy gifts for the family. There really are some beautiful things. However, the prices are seriously inflated, the price you need to pay is normally a third of the original price they quote. I would advise that you only show a genuine interest in... More
The Marché des fleurs is one of my favorite markets in Central Africa for tribal art and all kinds of art craft. One can find arts from Cameroon and neighboring countries. Be prepared to bargain like in most markets. Very unusual setting as it is in fact a flower market with an art craft market inside
This is a very good place to find great Cameroonian gifts, arts & crafts, and souvenirs. Actually, if you are in Douala, and are looking for a souvenir or a gift to take abroad, this is the best place. The flowers are also very beautiful. It is a must-see in the city. Don't be shy to bargain for the prices.

Named as well "marche vert" pity to see almost same as every where else with more chineese products tahn local production with very high price. still good to visit, just for the atmosphere.
Un petit coin de rue avec quelques étales de fleur, surtout mortuaires. About 7 very small outdoor stands with a few flowers, mainly for funerals. Perhaps is it better at other seasons?
i love going to this market. Please make sure you take small denominations of cash as there is no change. divide every price by 5 and then work up to a reasonable price. your a tourist and there are not many of us around there so we pay the price.
The place is not big yes, but is worthy if you go back home with a purchase of transportable fresh flowers that they specially design for your home. my friend and I were to decorate the wedding of someone special to me. The celebration was to happen in Yaoundé, 4-5 Hrs from Douala were the Market is located. we purchase... More
