The small, roofed shacks stand so close together that they form a makeshift covered market. The walkways between the stalls are so narrow that two people can barely pass each other. Here are hundreds of stalls and finding one's way around is next to impossible, despite the whole area being of a limited size. Around this central market, improvised stalls – often just a woman selling vegetables under a colourful parasol – spill into the surrounding streets. Labé is the capital of the Fouta Djallon region and, as such, the city's market is the biggest of its kind. It's a mecca for foodies that overflows with food stuff and fresh produce, much of which is completely foreign to Western visitors. White balls of something that could be cheese, but certainly doesn't taste like it, tubs of homemade peanut butter and large bottles of spicy brown groundnut sauce. Also found in the market are weird fruits like baobab fruits, miraclefruits, breadfruits, and much more.
