Exploring Africa’s Markets: Lilongwe’s Central and Crafts Market

David’s Been Here is in Malawi’s capital of Lilongwe, where David tours the city’s central market and crafts market. Walk around the tight quarters and crowded stalls selling everything from fruits to clothes, but make sure you bring a guide with you! David explains the semi-hectic scene of traversing the central market, which for some might be a bit overwhelming to experience. Heading off to the more subtle market of the two, David displays the various carvings, souvenirs and trinkets that you can pick up at the Lilongwe Crafts Market. With intricate masks, animals, globes and more being hand carved right in front of you, you shouldn’t have a shortage of things to buy at this more touristic market of the two.
