Good place to get some souvenirs, trinklets or artifacts but extremely high prices due to the targeted tourist clientele.

It was a very good experience overall. Recently planned to visit again, but unfortunately the stalls have been shifted. Does anyone know where are they relocated??

There are now more markets in Zambia but Sunday market still stands out as a tradition that's been going on for more than 15 years. If you have time make sure you walk the full market before committing to anything. Then you will find the unique paintings, crafts, sculptures, and carvings. Some of my finds included an absolutely stunning painting of a lion, bottle cap chitenge trivets for hot food, and chitenge earrings that I like to bring back for friends.. It is a place of negotiation, but as the years have gone by, I've gotten softer in my stance. The work is beautiful -- and it is the labor and hard work of artists trying to make a living.

I got the experience I was hoping for. Haggling, lots of neat souvenirs and gifts, etc. The only thing that wore me out was merchants calling me and trying to guide me into their stalls. Every 10 seconds it's "my friend! Take a look!"

Still - one of the treasured memories I still have from my trip to Zambia in 2013. And I still kick myself for being too cheap to buy a big malachite panther statue. It was so cool...

Great place to pass time after your Sunday morning church service. This is a lovely market that brings friends and families together. Good place to pick up some souvenirs to spoil your friends and family.
You cab bargain for some nice pieces of curios, chitenge wraps, baskets, etc.

Great opportunity to get anything and everything you would ever need for home, family, and friends to remember your trip. Purses. Backpacks. Carved animals. Stuffed animals. Beaded and paper mache necklaces. Bowls. Baskets. Paintings. So much more.

Nearly everything you see will be in another stall. WALK THROUGH FIRST BEFORE BUYING ANYTHING!!! Know prices to know how to haggle. I never lost a sale at my price once saying no and walking away.

Large market. Definitely haggle aggressively and be ready to walk away. With few exceptions, you will see the item you want at a different stall.

Great choice, and good prices because a lot of marketeers from all over the city are present so there is competition.

An awesome market for real Zambian curios and treats. Everything to take home to family and friends.

Beautiful crystals, copper/brass jewellery, wooden crafts, woven baskets and much more.

Some amazing locally made outfits using traditional wax print fabric. Very good prices too but make sure you bargain.

Best to go aroun 9:30am or later as many stalls are still setting up at 9am. Walk around once to get an idea before going back to each shop.
