Shopping in Kumasi 

Many stalls line the footpaths in town, including this oven shop on a roundabout under a tree. A cacophony of vendors’ calls, preachers and buskers adds to the sensory overload.

The crowds inside the central market, the largest open air market in Africa, are on a whole new level though.


Trade in fabrics, shea butter, coconuts, beads, snails, drums, vegetables, tailoring, and so on attracts people from afar. You can even buy a jar of “Shit Paste”, but we didn’t try it.
