How to shop at Maasai market, a shoppers guide to Maasai market.

One of the most interesting things about this market is that it's held at different locations within town every day.

Monday- There's no market on this day

Tuesday-Kijabe street (CBD)

Wednesday- Capital center

Thursday -Junction mall

Friday-village market

Saturday-Court of appeal parking

Sunday- Yaya center (CBD)

  • At each of these locations, the market runs from 8.00 am to 7.00 pm.

Pro tips

  • Prices differ depending on location, you get things cheapest on the days the market is in CBD rather than at village market or Yaya center which are high-end shopping centers.
  • Visit the market around evening hours, you get things at a cheaper price this time compared to lunch hours.

Goods to get here

  • There's a variety of things you can get here, all from deep Maasai land, here are some:
  1. Maasai sandals
  2. Shukas (African shows)
  3. Kiondos ( African reed-made baskets)
  4. Artwork, sculptures, and carvings
  5. Other types of bead objects such as jewelry and belts
