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

So much amazing art. I went in search of some leather and got carried away by all the art, jewelry, color, and textures. You would find pretty much anything here but prepare to drive a hard bargain so you get a fair deal.

If you haven't been before take a guide. Even for me as a local there's plenty going on and lots to see. You can order hand carved furniture, get a dress blinged with beads an buy ingredients for your dinner all in minutes. It you need a relatively decent market setting at which to purchase you African souvenirs, this would... More

If you're looking for a market that has African fabric, locally made African print clothing, jewellery and art work, look no further. This market has it all. The market can be a little overwhelming and confusing with the amount things happening at the same time. Be patient and take your time.
