With more than 11,000 stalls and shops, Kumasi's Central Market is known as the largest in West Africa (though we haven't been able to find out which one is the biggest in all of Africa). It's insanely chaotic as you approach the outskirts of the market, but as you venture deeper in along the cramped alleyways, the more calm and relax it gets. Losing yourself for hours is part of the fun, and it's particular pleasant due to the surprising lack of hassle. Kente cloth is probably the most popular merchandise, but really, there's not much you can't get here, like smoked rodents. However, if your want something specific or if you're looking for a more comprehensive introduction to the market, you could ally yourself with a guide. If for nothing else, simply to have a chance of finding what you're looking for in the first place.
