Well worth a wander round and look at the wide variety of stuff for sale. Particularly liked the stalls with local tribal crafts. They will be surprised if you accept the first price, have a bit of fun and haggle.

We really only did a drive-by of this market. It is not at all the same as the main Market in Addis, this is more of a roadside market.

I would recommend Chiromeda Market as a great place for Ethiopian clothes. I have also been told the prices here are better than other more touristy locations such as near the post office. However, when we last visited it was near Christmas so prices were...More
