Many small shops all selling the same stuff more or less. They start out high in price. Just start out about a third or less of what they ask and go from there. Then it won't be expensive.

Set next the main mall, the majority of the vendors are down below. It is good safe friendly marketplace - as usual with such places there is some repetition but that is to the buyers advantage to negotiate a good price

Love coming here because you get the African market vibe, but it's not too aggressive. If you go regularly, you get to know the vendors a bit better, which I have enjoyed. I even got a really good deal because I reminded one fella that...More
