Youll get literally everything you want in idumota market... Earrings- obun eko, fabrics- balogun, halloway for your interior decor. Ebutte ero, Dosumu, etc. I Sha got all on my shopping list at wholesale price.

Review №2

Market for all. I would call it the most visited market in the whole of Lagos and Nigeria. Very rowdy tho but youll definitely get whatever it is that got you there.

Review №3

There is hardly anything you cant get here in terms of utilities.Best plug for all your personal utility needs. Prices of products are quite affordable.

Review №4

A very good place to get varieties of stuffs, in sizes and different prices/qualities.

Review №5

A good plug for quality at good price. However, you have to be very careful and you must know where you are going and exactly what you want before you set out.

Review №6

The biggest local market in Lagos! You can literally get anything you want here, with good prices. Only problem is, it’s always crowded and stressful! Which is expected.Best time to go is in the morning because of traffic, depending where one is coming from, so you can go and get back home on time. 👍🏽

Review №7

The picture here represents the calm before the chaos. Idumota market is not for the faint hearted. Be ready to haggle price, move from one vendor to another in your quest for best price.And most importantly, hold your personal belongings closely. It could get snatched if youre careless. Lots of foot traffic and over-enthusiastic sellers do its best to go with a friend who knows the market well.I enjoy my visits here. I consider it an enjoyable experience when I have the time.I give it a 4 star because parking can be hell.

Review №8

One of the biggest markets in Lagos where u can get all qualities of any and everything you need. It is a :shine your eyes market. I got the attached from this market. Theyre real good stuffs

Review №9

I visited on a Sunday. There are less buyers and less sellers. I am able to scantily shop without the usual hustle and bustle. Goods available are clothings, hair, shoes, bags etc

Review №10

Idumota Market is a market located on Lagos Island, a suburb and local government area of Lagos State. It is one of the oldest and arguably one of the largest markets in West Africa with thousands of lock-up shops occupying various buildings in the market.

Review №11

So much traffic and crowded, with alot of goods and services

Review №12

Chai! Let me first exclaim. The fact that I dont really go out makes visiting this place a drag. One of the most high in traffic places youll ever be in Lagos. With almost every space occupied by one small business or the other, youll hardly walk 2 feet before you collide with someone or they collide with you.Its a dog eat dog location where you have to shine your eyes at all times. If you are not the type that can handle stress, this is not the market to be because you are sure to get a share of the stress from this place when you visit.Talk about buying various kinds of products, especially fabrics, clothes and jewelries...this is the finest spots you can go for the right price especially if you are retailer.

Review №13

Its a nice place with so many things of choice. But the prices are high now due to the economy of the country.

1. Not for the faint hearted!2. Has almost everything you need!3. Go with a small cross body bag to protect your phone/money from pickpockets4. Has a lot of atm machines and most traders there accept bank transfers, so you dont necessarily have to carry sozdx much cash around.For Jewelries/baby items - DosumuFor lace fabrics - OluwoleFor Male wears - MandilasFor women - BalogunFor Provisions- Oke arin/ Ebute EroKitchen Utensils - HollowayThats all i know for now😁And yea, if you look at one of my pictures, youll see a guy trying to convinve me to follow him to his store where he claims has all I need. Dont trust those guys! They either sell to you at an outrageous price, defraud you, rob you, or confuse you😩Anyways, shopping there is exciting! Haha!

However, its very busy with a high volume of human traffic and vehicular traffic sometimes.

Review №33

Good place to buy cheap items but with huge traffic

Review №34

I would say its one of the most popular and busiest markets in Lagos. Ive always gone there 11am but I decided to leave early today. I was there 7am and the place was packed full. Shops were open and wears were out ready for sale. You can buy anything you want...I mean anything except electronics here. They sell it but its not the go to market for that. From items as little as biros, toothpicks, books, schools bags, ranging to clothes (kids to adults) and food/kitchen items, provisions etc. Youll find it here and at wholesale price too. Youll find items based on your pocket as well...items from China, Turkey, UK, germany etc. Just make sure youre wearing something comfy and be ready to push through the crowd and youre good to go.

Review №38

You want to buy anything - clothes, foodstuffs, household items, baby things, jewellery at wholesale prices? This market is the go-to place.The market spots spacious car parks too. However, get ready for some shoves here, slams there because the human traffic is heavy. You also need to be very protective of your personal effects. . All in all, good shopping experience.

Review №62

A nice place to visit your early in the morning 🌄

Review №63

Nice shopping area. You get the best price

Review №64

The great part is, theres nothing you are looking for that you wont find in this market. The bad part is the enormous crowd of shoppers and be wary of pick pockets and thieves so guard your bags and valuables jealously. Dont be overwhelmed by the crowd or the sheer size of the market or inability to locate what you want.A quick way to find what you want is to locate the boys who are asking you what you want to buy. They know all the good places where you can get great deals.Use them, save time and gift them 500 to 1k and you will be happy.

Review №65

The famous Idumota Market! Most busy than a bees hive, rowdy and noisy. This market is located just after the bridge that leads to the Island, Not too far from Surulere. You can get anything you can think of here, anytime from cockcrow to sun dawn. This is the real EKO!

Review №66

A super busy market but there us almost nothing you cant get here. You just need to know the right corners for super cheap prices.

Review №69

Has a lot if items, ranging from Clothings, to food, accessories, medical supplies, shows and bags, etc.The risk side is it is not well designed to accommodate as much car parks as needed and there is a fare for parking which is managed by the street urchins.Its a nice marker to be, but one must be street-smart at Idumota market because of some low-level criminals (pocket pickers and phone/items stealers).Thanks

Review №77

Largest west Africa market situated in the heart of Lagos Island. It has different sections of goods for sale with mixed finesse presentations. Be prepared to take a long walk as accessibility is better via foot once on the island. Prices are pocket friendly as well as varied offers of goods available.

Review №78

The real experience where human flow forces you to feel the population of Lagos

Review №79

Ill give it five stars because you can get absolutely anything you want at Idumota Market. There are varieties of items, products, sellers situated at various locations.The biggest disadvantage is its rowdiness; huge numbers of buyers, commuters, sellers and passersby troop the market everday. Hence, this partially gives room for pickpockets to carry out their nefarious acts.If you have to visit Idumota Market; Shine ya eye well well(be at alert always) like they popularly say. You should hold your bag and belongings firmly in a position where you can watch them closely.Also, I assure you that you will enjoy street food in Idumota, most especially the fries, Ofada rice and the delicious taste of hot amala...Im salivating already. Lol😂😂I do hope you enjoy your visitation to Idumota Market; I also help you get what you need there. Cheers🥂

My mum sells garri in this market.Its a very big place to get anything you are looking for ranging from utensils, to wears, food stuff and many moreThe culture of Lagos is very ingrained here and you can see the oba palace around this place.I love the Amala and Ewedu I took here, well my mum bought for me, however the last time I came in the evening, the rice I ate was spoiling already.The place is also super rowdy and you can loose your belongings if you are not careful, my mum always warn me not to take fliers from people sharing around the market, they are scammers😔Above all, Idumota is a great landmark in Lagos but you must shine your eye!
