Sunday Market is the perfect place to buy all those overpriced touristy gifts for friends and family back home who can say, “oh my niece brought me this mask back from Zambia for me.” Little does she know that mask is actually a ceremonial fertility mask from Ethiopia or something equally not related to Zambian culture. Its perfect for knick knacks and stuff you can convince yourself you need. I love Sunday market. It’s fun to wander around. It has gotten a lot smaller since they’ve moved it because of the construction at Arcades mall, but you can still get everything you want. It’s now in the fields across from the Protea Hotel at Arcades Mall until they finish construction. My advice? BARGAIN. If you are a foreigner, they will usually tell you about double the price. Don’t feel bad for arguing your way down a bit. If you can speak any of the local language it helps a lot.
