Marché kermel

Whether you’re on the hunt for the perfect souvenir, family gifts or simply an arts and crafts lover, Marché Kermel is the place for you.


As an introvert, I appreciate the more relaxed vibe of this market compared to others in the city. Just browse and be wowed!


The building itself is a sight with a beautiful tiled arch leading inside the food market. Arts and crafts are sold in the surrounding area of the main building. I have found everything from sandals, dresses, masks to jewellery here. Prepare to bargain!


Having a Wolof-speaking friends or guide helps tremendously. I visited the market for the first time as part of my guided city tour with Andaando.
