Albert Market, Banjul, The Gambia 

Albert Market is in Banjul on Liberation Avenue and is the capital’s main urban market. It was named after Queen Victoria’s husband Prince Albert Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. It is essentially an emporium that is  pungent,  lively and bustling with a large selection of vividly designed fabrics, carvedwooden masks and fresh produce which is packed to the brim. All this is laid out within a labyrinth of alleys and hundreds of rickety stalls and purpose built shops. It is open from 8am to 7pm.
