Be ready for a typical African market, if you haven't seen one before. Everybody will tell it is a dangerous place, I didn't feel threatened at all. Just usual caution with pickpockets and no jewelry in evidence, of course. No slippers as the ground is very filthy but then...just the only place where to find fruit, vegetables, fabrics and everything... More

You can find a lot of very interesting thing... like african fabric, all kind of luggages and purses, jewelry fake or gold and silver, local fruits and Veggies, Artisanal handcraft, etc... You need to go with somebody local, a man, because it's quite dangerous so be careful to keep you wallet, phone, camera, in a safe place.

This local market is very very crowded. So many vendors. Some people likes to get photo taken (actually approaches and asks to be in the photo) and some gets upset when you are carrying a camera. If you like to experience how Gabonese live, I'd recommend. However, always travel in group.

It's great for a visit to buy some souvenirs. Varied, colourful, inexpensive and often attractive, spending an hour chatting and bargaining with the shopkeepers can be fun. Try and buy from the shops from further within the market, better prices and better conversations.

I have to marche mont-bouet it's the market in libreville where everyone meets everyone on the saturday morning. The worst days to go there would be at the end of the month saturday morning. You will regret it unless you enjoy being in that kind of environment otherwise during the week it is ok. You can find anything and everything... More
