The Maasai Market
Colors of Kenya
The Maasai Market is an excellent spot to get all kinds of handmade crafts, jewelry, beads, woodwork, and art in the middle of Nairobi. My favorite items were the stacks of fabrics with Maasai prints, plaids, and Barack Obama screens. At this market you walk among aisles, head down, as the "booths" are made up of women sitting on the ground, their wares spread before them on blankets.
