Albert Market

Banjul is a relatively safe and peaceful city, where it is worth exploring the crowded colourful markets selling all kinds of wares. It is the best way to take the pulse of the city and see everyday’s life of its people and customs.

The most outstanding is Albert Market, a large typically African market mainly selling fruit, vegetables and fish. A place colorful, noisy, full of people where much of Banjul’s daily life is concentrated . In Albert Market you can buy anything you can think of. Follow your instinct and smells coming from the stalls of spices and flowers or the less pleasant smells of fish.

Its people, vendors and customers are somehow reluctant to first-time visitors but, soon, you will discover that they simply need some time to be more friendly and happy.
