If you brave Katejia market, you will experience a true taste of Ghanaian life. You will get lost, but market dwellers are always happy to point you in the right direction. We recommend starting near the Cathedral on Roman Hill - from there you walk a little bit down the road and then duck into the market around the tomatoes... More

I love a great open air market. It tells the story of the city you are in. Kejetia is massive, I visited 3 days in a row and spent around 4 hours total. I believe you can hire a guide but exploring on your own is nice so you can take your time. The vendors were for the most part... More

I asked our hotel if they knew a guide and an assistant manager kindly showed the 6 of us around this huge market. Our ages ranged from 70 - 17 and we spent 2 -3 hours having a good wonder around. We bought cloth, nick knacks (I bought a catapult...), and generally had a great time. The market was ferociously... More

Special immersion in a wild place. Avoid it if it is raining. Mest sector is not for food security specialists.

So my friend Jim and I just returned from 2 weeks in the wonderful country of Ghana, and though we did and saw a lot of extraordinary things, we agreed that perhaps the highlight of the whole trip was the half-day we spent with our guide Comfort touring the Kumasi's enormous Kejetia Market. This place can be overwhelming, I think,... More

Largest open-air market in ALL of West Africa! This is not a tourist type market like the stalls outside the Kumasi Cultural Center. This is where Ghanaians do their shopping for the whole of colorful life! An absolute must see of anything in Kumasi, by everyone’s standards. I’d really recommend one day to see it, tour it, to begin to... More
