Well first off none of the locals have ever heard of this place. And GPS is a no go. We finally arrived at a typical Lagos outside market and asked someone who knew where it was. It's situated behind the "shanty market" for lack of a better term. Once in and after I stopped sweating, they actually have some pretty... More

Here one cannot find fridge magnets, but there is plenty of other artefacts that can later remind you f this interesting country with long history. Lekki Market is one of those selling places where you will find livestock, next to clothes, next to bananas and tomatoes, next to jeweleery. And it is really exciting to see. Small tip - do... More

Make you visit when you have plenty of time, the golden rule is not to buy from the first stall. Don't be afraid to bargain as prices of goods are ridiculously set higher than their real value. The work of painters are remarkable as well as ladies accessories. Some products are available in all the shops and they seem to... More

The products of local talent on display at reasonable prices - paintings, carvings, beads, corals, cloths, adorned swords, metal work, lion teeth, leopard skins, you name it, you'll probably find it. Can spend an entire day here without covering a quarter of the shops. Well worth a visit for anyone looking for artsy things.

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
