Albert Market Banjul
This is a traditional and hassle free market where you cab see how Gambia people shop, the produce available and experience the colour and bustle of real daily life in the area.
The craft shops will be very persistent but simply ask them to give you room and time to decide.
The shop keepers are keen to show you around their shops and are willing to talk to you and explain how they do things & if you buy a drum be prepared for a lesson on it - Always very interesting.
All the shops here are worth a look and see some of the locals doing the wood carving too.
Happy shopping and smile!
Great shopping
I appreciate they need to make a living but would do better if they left us alone while shopping.
If you prefer to browse and shop at leisure without hassle and bartering we found the shop to be well stocked and have some really lovely items, they even sold local honey and jams
