Market shopping in Niamey
- Sort by:
If you're patient and peruse the nether regions of the Grand Marché you'll find a fine selection of goods, including Tuareg and Hausa leatherwork, silver jewellery, batiks and tie-dyed cloth. Look out for les couvertures Djerma (known locally as a kountas) - large, bright strips of cotton sewn together into a large blanket, which are truly spectacular and unique to Niger. As always, friendly negotiations are in order!
