    Nsukka Market

    The traditional markets in Nigeria, are not structured. Buyers and sellers meet and discurse prices, and this is the only true market in economic sence, because prices are fixed based on spontaneous forces of Demand and Supply.

    Nsukka Filling Station

    by Toyin Updated Jan 20, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I have known Nsukka intimately for about five years by the time I took this picture, and what is common here is the lack, or scarcity of petroleum product. The fuel bussiness here is triving well for those that have filling stations like this.

    The Irony of this picture, is that, this is perharps the only station in the Nsukka environs where you could buy fuel at the government controlled price.

    This is the OKADA transport section opposite the market stalls. Here commercial motorcycles are foundly called OKADA. It is a veritable and popular means of transport as commuters can get to their destinations more quickly without apprehensions about traffic jams.

    Nsukka Market - Nigeria: Nsukka Market

    by Toyin Updated Oct 10, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a typical Nigerian market. No big shopping malls, but equally efficient. Usually you have to haggle the price with the seller, as you could see this women doing in the Pics.

    What to buy: You can buy from food stuffs to clothing items and general machandise. I bought some provissions, and indegenous music of the Eastern Nigeria from this market.

    What to pay: Relatively things are generally cheap as you don't have to pay tax or VAT.

    Street Hawkers Store: Also notice the St Hawkers

    by nnapr Written Oct 15, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Whenever road conditons cause traffic, vendors will be alongside your car to sell you almost anything under the sun! If they know you aren't a local, you'll get charged a little bit more, but you can still haggle for a good price. Hot items: drinks, food, toilet seats, cell phone accessories, hats, fake watches, CDs/DVDs, magazines.

    What to buy: Note of Caution: be careful when "shopping" in a go slow. If your window is all the way down, you may have some unintended vendors reaching into your car!! Mind the beggers mixed in with the vendors---don't run them over!!

    What to pay: Below US$1 and upwards.

    Very typical of the agrarian and traditional sector of the Nigerian economy, you find a market like this. They are not specialised market, as one could buy virtually everything from live goat to CDs.
