Makola Market

Open daily, but with fewer merchants on Sundays. Accra’s largest open-air market overflows with goods, people, scents and sounds, hustle and bustle. It is the best place to absorb the atmosphere of a West African market. Many say that if you can’t find what you want here, it probably isn’t available in Ghana! Because traffic is so heavy in this area, it is best to put on your walking shoes, taxi to the edge of the market, and enter the fray from there. Go in the morning when it’s a bit cooler. For those desiring something similar but on a less overwhelming scale, consider Kaneshie Market, northwest of Obetsebi Lamptey Circle on the Winneba Rd.
