A Guide to the Albert Market in Banjul

Royal Albert Market in Banjul
Market in Banjul, Gambia

Take a peek into a real local experience of a market. Banjul’s main hub of activity. Since its founding in the 19th century, the Royal Albert Market, an area of frenzied buying, bartering and bargaining. Bustling African market selling everything, here you can buy everything from food to household goods, and also local crafts. Stalls stacked with shimmering fabrics, hair extensions, shoes, household and electrical wares and the myriad colours and flavours of the fruit and vegetable market.

The Albert Market always worth a visit if in Banjul. Lovely market with great people. This street market is named after Albert, Prince Consort, husband of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, who controlled the Gambia during colonial times.
