Mukuni Curio Market

This is the perfect place to get all the little gifts for people back home. It’s like a smaller version of Sunday Market in Lusaka. A lot of the work is the same, but I enjoy taking my time and going through looking for unique items specific to the artist. The people are very friendly, a little pushy, but just trying to make a living. It’s okay to bargain with them as the first price they give you will almost always be high. Don’t feel pressured to buy anything, just politely say you’re not interested in it and move on if someone is being pushy. All in all, there are some beautiful artworks here, it’s a cute, colorful, little market. You can’t miss it if you’re walking along the main road.

Dutch Market

Located in Kabulonga by Kabulonga boys, at the Dutch Reformed Church, and happens the last Saturday of every month. The entrance fee is between 5-10kwa (~50 cents – $1). I love this market because it has very different things than all the other cultural markets around Zambia. Xpats and Zambians come in from all over Zambia to sell their things and advertise their business. There is great food and drink here from all different cultures and cute hipster things like handmade soaps, jewelry, and candles. If you’re in the area when this is going on I highly recommend going.
