The Grand Marché is N’Djamena’s largest and vibrant daily market where items like colourful jewellery, accessories and locally made rugs can be purchased. The colonial-styled buildings along its wide streets are lined with minibuses, supermarkets, banks, embassies, airlines and internet cafes, among others. On the east side of the Grand Marche are mud brick houses of local residents, African bars, street stalls and small shops. An interesting tip about visiting this market is that if you are an expat, vendors are most likely to charge you higher prices, so it is advisable to go with a local. Also remember, most of the sellers do not speak French at all, so be guided. Overall, it’s a beautiful experience at the Grand Marché and it’s indeed the major centre of attraction in N’Djamena.
