This market is definitely in my top five for markets worldwide. The easy-to-navigate 24-hour bazaar is always lively, filled with locals shopping for groceries and household goods. I’m partial to the tuna oke-oke, diced raw fish drenched in lime, coconut milk and fresh chiles. Simple, refreshing and costs the equivalent of a couple quarters. Lamb breasts are barbecued in the back, tobacco is rolled and cut: This is the market you dream about, almost untouched for centuries. Last time I was there I found 18 fruits I had never seen before, let alone tasted.
