We go as often as our budget allows. The Lekki Market is a must if you want to buy gifts or any other household items, fresh food, furniture, art, jewellery, etc, etc. Wear flip-flops or gumboots and leave flashy jewellery and expensive items at home....then be prepared to negotiate!!!

Market provides lots of local/nearby African countries art works. Ranging from semi precious stones, wood carvings, brass antiques, paintings, ornaments, leather goods, elephant tusk etc etc. However one need to be cautious about the ingenuity of products as well local rules for animal goods trade. Bargain depends upon individual ranging from 1/2 to 1/4 of original price.

The market is not easy to find because it's located at the back of main parking area but once you find it, it presents a variety of art pieces. To get value for money, you have to be very good at bargaining! We got some nice jewellery at fair prices. Because of the weak Naira, if you change your dollars... More

Lekki market I believe also know as lekki craft market was a place I enjoyed and looked forward to visiting. It had various merchants with an array of items, from paintings, carvings, jewellery, books etc. I was fortunate to have acquired some beautiful pieces in the past. That was about 5 years ago. I visited the market last month and... More

This is a definite must- visit market for tourists to pick up arts, crafts, local fabrics already sewn, beautiful bags made with local fabrics etc etc. I am a local but I visit often to buy pearls and ready made ankara loose kaftans. I went there for some nice loose ankara blouses over Christmas which I wear on leggings... The... More

A very busy, easy to get lost in, market. Most important tidbit is to not show up until about 11-1130 am. Various shops will all kinds of local crafts. My personal favorite was the hand woven baskets. Many of them come from Ghana, and you can bargain a bit on the price. As always in these kind of markets, keep... More

I went on a Sunday and only a fraction of the shops were open. But it was even better. Great crafts, art and jewelry. Be prepared to bargain and push the vendors away. It's a must see while in Lagos.

Many sellers all willing to do a quick trade, it can be a bit overwhelming when so many are trying to see to you. It is useful to have someone who knows the area and can fend off the crowds. Be careful off the prices, there is a lot of flexibility, paying too early will cause you to pay too... More

This is well worth a visit but it is very difficult to find as Lekki is the name of the area so there are a couple of markets but you'll know when you're going there because the road is difficult to negotiate in a car or motorbike. You walk through a food market first and then in a compound is... More

The Lekki market is a fun place to visit & shop around. Be prepared for some vendors that pitch aggressive attempts to get you to buy their wares. If you see something you really like, ask the price, then shake your head a walk away. The vendors will immediately cut their offer 25-50%, then you can start bargaining. Many stalls... More
