The Balogun Market is Nigeria's largest market and one of the largest in West Africa. If the textiles of African vivid tones, the typical ankara fabrics and the leather, clothes and accessories, shoes and local crafts, make your head over heels, let yourself go by your shopping appetite and enter the bargaining environment to compete for the best price with locals.
There is not really a fixed address for the market, given the size that extends almost labyrinthically through the streets of Lagos. But it is in the financial centre of the city that Balogun street and the adjacent streets, make Lagos an authentic open-air mall with the traditional bustle of local markets.
In Balogun Market, prepare to face the crowd looking for the best products and prices. If some confusion makes no difference when looking for the perfect clothing, start preparing large bags to carry all your shopping!
