Marché Kermel

Marché Kermel is a food and souvenir market housed in a beautiful circular building in downtown Dakar. It showcases Senegal's great wealth of fruits, vegetables, grains and meats, as well as the day's freshest catches, all available at very affordable prices. Outside the building you'll find the souvenir stalls selling jewelry, masks, sculptures and more.


The best shopping to be found in Dakar is at the abundant and colourful markets all around the city. Some specialize in certain types of products, like fabrics or local produce, while others seem to offer just about anything you can think of. Be sure to haggle to ensure getting the best possible price, and beware of pickpockets, who tend to take advantage of the hectic bustle of markets.
