“Great place to get your african souvenirs”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

Take a local with you to help you negotiate a good price. Other than that, it's a great place to get souvenirs.

“Unorganised bric a brac”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

A bit of everything and maybe worth a visit for a foreigner, but it didn't urge me to buy anything. Needs a good clean up and a local authority to make something of it. Could be so much better.

“Great selection - prices a little high - some quality items”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

We started at the back of the market. It seems only 25% of the possible stands are being used. We had to purchase a few items to know that you really do need to bargain with them. They will settle somewhere near 60 to 75% of their initial price. We found some real quality wood carved items near the back of the village -- made personally by the owners. We bought some items that we really didn't need -- just to be kind. There is a nice selection of items we have not seen in other markets in Africa.
