  • One of the most popular markets in Sénégal one can find almost every thing
  • Part of a bit of walking about my hotel area and making a meal of my mini sight seeing your walkabout. The market proper is located in the heart of the city of Dakar and is filled with fabrics, clothing, tailors (they do approach you) and so many bits and bobs. My main loves were the beautiful beaded pieces from jewelry to headpieces and footwear. The detailing was pretty amazing. . These pictures are a bit further away from the main market though.
