I know many people will say, haba Tomi but lets say the truth, some people will find this information useful. I found this on NAIJ and I felt it worthy to share; here are five popular clothing markets in Lagos that have become synonymous with clothes and fabrics.
Affectionately called “bend down market”, Katangua market is where you can get second hand wears and household items for as low as N100. The place is a hub of activities and your head will be in a swirl when you see arrays and arrays of beautiful things to buy. New consignments come on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays making those days special. The heaps of clothes have different grades and the prices reflect them. Located around Super bus stop in Abule Egba, you can’t miss it.
It is fair to treat these two markets as one although Tejousho Market has undergone a great transformation into a modern market. Yaba market offers items that are less priced than the one you’ll find in Tejousho market. Both markets will waoh you with the varieties of items on display. There are great clothes at fair prices and there’s even a section for second hand clothes too. There is a long mouthwatering display of pairs of jeans also.
Oshodi had undergone a fabulous transformation under the Fashola administration. Once a very disorganized market, it’s easy now to navigate in and out of it. The display of Ankara and materials for making clothes is awesome. For your aso ebi materials that requires bales and bales of clothes of the same material, Oshodi market will cater for that. You can easily get a bus from any part of the city that will convey you to Oshodi.
This is the chub of textile and fabric in Lagos. You surely can’t get enough of what the market offers. You need to be very smart to shop here as there are lots of people doing the same. Your favorite lace and wrapper will be on display there. There are also ready-made dresses available. All you just need to do is to confirm it’s the right size! Its located in the heart of Lagos fondly referred to as Eko. Many brides can testify to the beauty of Balogun Market.
Located in Isolo, Aswani markt is quite popular and brings a euphoric feeling when the name is mentioned. It is known for its long years of attending to consumers’ needs in terms of clothing, fabric and accessories. Tuesdays are special days and you have you tighten your belt when you go there.
