Both locals and tourists go shopping at Marché Kermel. The beautiful Victorian style open air building shelters its busy fresh food stalls inside. Outside, art souvenir stalls boarder around in a maze-like setup, with some vendors working on pieces throughout the day.
There are other markets nearby, namely Marché Sandaga within walking distance, but I find Kermel's vendors let you roam about without intensely pushing their wares. Instead of haggling over a mask I don't particularly wan to buy, I am able to watch a basket be woven, a glass tile be painted, and a wood statue be polished.
Usually, this laissez-faire attitude equals more purchases. Go figure!
