  • Such a pity because I wanted to buy several things for the family, but the hassling and pushing by he vendors drove me away very quickly. If they'd just leave people to look, they'd make more sales.  more »
  • We have been on this market a few times. It's a nice "Kraft" market. Even though they have a lot the same, many carvings make them themselves. You can also simply see the artists at work. What used to be for us was that a deal was not a deal. If you give up an amount and they have to return money then they can never. There is a whole game place that they are going to swap elsewhere, come back to report that they can not swap (and no matter what amount it is), and ask you to buy something else from his stall for the change of money. We did not recognise this negotiating model yet (on our travels to South-East Asia this did not apply). So think about what you want to have for the change, give it as a tip or just enjoy his Dutch quarrel to get your change money. But remember what you want.

  • I managed to buy good material here, but it is small & touristy. You might be able to get better prices at another market in Banjul. There is a tailor, Solomon, who is reasonably priced. This market is in Senegambia near the tourist area.
  • hectic full on craft market, they all want you to go into there room and check out the carvings...so be prepared. nice to see them carving stuff as well. haggle for best price. there ate some great carving and some not as good.. look carefully..
