Marché Kermel, Dakar

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.
