    MAROX SUPERMARCHÉ: USEFUL IN LOMÉ

    by DAO Written Sep 30, 2012

    %3
    The Marox supermarket is fairly well stocked. They have plenty of canned goods, cold soft drinks, cold beers and larger items like oil and rice. They have a reasonable butcher counter and some very good sausages. You will also find very good local nuts (like cashews) sold inside recycled water bottles. They do not have a lot of kitchen gadgets, but the Le Champion Supermarché across the street has everything.

    The best thing about the Marox is that is has the absolute best fruit and vegetable stands in Togo just outside. I mean amazing produce.

    Between the Marox, Le Champion and the fresh produce stalls here, you have everything you need to survive in one place. It’s more expensive than if you go and haggle for individual items in the massive market areas that start here, but it’s really convenient.

    Marox Supermarché is open:
    8:00-12:20 and 13:00-18:30 Monday-Friday
    08:00-13:00 Saturday

    LE CHAMPION: GOOD FOR POSTCARDS & WINE

    by DAO Updated Sep 30, 2012


    Le Champion is a massive grocery store that also sells household good, including appliances. The best part is that they sell postcard. Lomé is a very hard place to find postcards. You can buy them here for 300 CFA. Just ask for ‘Carte Postal’ and they are towards the left as you enter past the checkouts. Oddly they sell good postcards for Ghana as well.

    Le Champion does sell ice cold soft drinks at suitable expensive prices (325 CFA). They also have a great selection of imported cheeses, meats, and seafood. In terms of household goods and kitchen gadgets – they have it all. They also have a huge selection of beers, juices and canned foods. The best part is a truly amazing wine room. Absolutely superb imported wines from across the world. If you want to enjoy some superb wine and cheese, this is the shop for you in Lomé.

    They will ask you to check any bags (for free) with the guards. There are plenty of shopping trolleys and the staff are friendly.

    They have a very large butchery counter(s) at the rear so if you need any fresh meats you have an excellent selection.

    A lot of the prices are high by local standards, but they do carry European name brands of everything from food to cosmetics. You will see a few ex-pats shopping with you.

    I do not have the opening hours for Le Champion, but the grocery store across the street (Marox Supermarché) is open:
    8:00-12:20 and 13:00-18:30 Monday-Friday
    08:00-13:00 Saturday

    ** They have a Bank of Africa ATM to get cash **

    Fan Milk Products

    by Bonobo2005 Written Nov 20, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: Sold by young men on bicycles, The Fan Milk products are addicting and available on almost every corner of the street.

    Imagine the heat, the dust that you can suffer from in tropical conditions, and suddenly you hear the sound of Fan Milk. You wave, he stops and you take a look at the assortment.

    Oh it’s soooo hard to choose, but my favourites are:

    1. FanYogo Vanilla Yoghurt (frozen);
    2. FanYogo Strawberry Yoghurt (frozen);
    3. Tampico (rarely frozen but ice-cold lemon / orange juice);
    4. FanIce (Vanilla Ice);
    5. Tropical Cocktail (another great juice);
    6. Fanpop (water ice that comes in 5 different tastes);
    7. FanYogo Chocolate Milk (frozen).

    Outside Lomé it’s unusual to find them available all at the same time. They typically cost from EUR 0,10 (Fanpop) to EUR 0,20 (Yogo).

    Dried Animal skins

    by Bonobo2005 Written Nov 20, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: If you’re into animal skins, you will find a large variety at the Marché des Féticheurs in Lomé.

    At the market you may like to observe skilled craftsmen preparing fresh skins. It’s interesting to see aspects of the skin that are in daily life out of sight!

    Animal skulls and bones

    by Bonobo2005 Written Nov 20, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: The specialty of the Marché des Féticheurs are skulls, and I cannot think of an animal skull that is not available here.

    Besides the usual trade you have a good chance of finding valuable skulls and bones belonging to several types of monkey, rhino and elephant!

    These are expensive and usually you won’t need much of it to solve the problem or cure the illness, so commonly people buy small pieces only

    Voodoo Dolls and Masks

    by Bonobo2005 Updated Nov 20, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: At the Marché des Féticheurs you find many goods related to Voodoo rituals and practises.

    Voodoo is one of the oldest religions in the world that probably originates from Benin and Togo, and in Togo it is still practised a lot.

    At the market you can also find a voodoo doctor, if you want a consult.
