The bustling Maasai Market in Nairobi, a veritable carnival of color and shape, allows handicraft consumers to purchase some of Africa’s extensive variety of arts and crafts at reasonable costs. It is an open-air market that attracts hundreds of residents and tourists searching for one-of-a-kind handicrafts to decorate their houses, themselves, or as gifts for friends and family.

Over a hundred sellers compete for your attention with colorful kikoys, curios, baskets, beadworks, and a variety of other intriguing African handicrafts. Buyers are frequently observed bartering for a discount after making their purchases, which is a common and accepted activity in this country.

The Maasai Market takes place at a variety of retail malls and other locales, as shown on the schedule below. The merchants set up shop in the parking lot of the relevant site and are open from 9.00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Shopping mall parking is generally more expensive than Law Courts Parking in the Central Business District (CBD).
