Local farmers sell their produce here; there's also the usual bric-a-brac of plasticware and clothes. Since it's one of the biggest markets around this area, it's also the place where people meet and chat – offering some great people-watching and a chance to absorb the local culture.

As the location is close to the Ghanaian border, this market has a mix of both Togolese and Ghanaian vendors.
