Markets in the main towns, notably Niamey and Agadez, sell a range of local artifacts. The Center des Métiers d'Art de Niger, close to the National Museum, is worth visiting, as a wide range of local goods can be bought there. Courteous bargaining is expected and items include multicolored blankets, leather goods, engraved calabashes, silver jewelry, swords and knives.
Markets sell local produce such as beans, rice, fruit, vegetables, oil and bush meat as well as fabric and clothing in traditional African prints, hardware and local crafts. However, prices may not be much cheaper than at home because many goods have to be imported from the mainland. Expect to barter in the markets.
