    4. Abeg I love these kinda road side market o. Nothing wey u wan buy wey u no go see. If u miss ur naija food just bounce to an open market like this. Finsbury Park market, Dalston market, Peckham Rye lane, Burnt Oak market etc. Omo all the food are fresh plus correct meat and chicken. Eheh

    2. Ok, everybody has been to or is in London, and u guys beg for everything here even pampers. I can feed hundreds of you but I've not yet been to Europe. Misplaced priorities or what?? I will go there only when I have good reason to, not to just for going sake. I am no longer a slave

    3. Anon take a chill pill
      What is the population of Nigeria again??
      What is the number of people commenting on this blog??
      Do you know that??
      Or you think it's the 100_200 people that leave comment that visit the blogs only..

      Some people visit and don't comment. Some comment occasionally

      How many poor and rich people are in Nigeria

      All of a sudden you feel because some people are well travelled then they are the beggars?? Please.. You didn't wonder if it was the givers that traveled??

      When you have the money travel but until then stop having on those who have left the shores of Nigeria and you haven't..

      Everyone always claiming they can feed the entire nation.. Issh

      Delete
    4. Anon 11:55 what a horrible person you are. So what if people beg? So what if you can feed people who are out of the country? Are you God? You have shown your wicked heart and unintelligence here. Even though people beg now, God can change people's destiny for good. Keep trying to belittle people. It will not make you look better.

    ReplyDelete
  19. This is a market, although in a street, but the roads are not in use during market hours, afterwards, the whole place is cleaned and and traffic return. If you don't live in the area, you would not know it's a market once past market hours, that's the difference. Nothing like Nigerian market. And by the way, you find such market across Europe not just England!

  23. London is a multi cultural city, they try to accommodate everyone. This is just another way of doing that. The street is cleaned afterwards and it's business as usual! We are not complaining. Everyone loves it. Only till about 4pm, then street is cleaned up. Happens in most western country guys. Get about more!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I saw this market a couple of years ago. I was so happy for them and wished it was somewhere close to my place. Infact, I saw yams, periwinkle (Isam) exactly the same way they put it in basins containing water to sell in the Garden city. I saw fresh ugwu, scent leaf,etc. Chei, l miss fresh scent leaf. Time to make some fresh fish pepper soup. Na who want some?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Street markets are a common sight all over the UK, though in designated areas. Nothing new or newsworthy.
    Don't you have them in Germany? I'm sure they have them in other parts of the world as well. It's not unique to naija.

    2. A lot of these stalls are majorly owned by asians (and some africans). They even deal more in african groceries than africans themselves.

    3. Smurf, my local halal shop is owned and run by Asians but they sell EVERYTHING African. Eachtime I see a Nigerian or Ghanaian meal on YouTube or food blogs I want to try, all I have to do is go there and they sell some.
      I hardly see African shops run and owned by Africans. Just a few...
      These guys even greet you in your local dialect when you enter..lol

    4. Smurf,don't let me laugh at you na.
      So you think they are Nigerians?
      You people will not kill me, lmao.

      My dear, you will be shocked that the percentage of Nigerians in this market is 10% or even less.

    ReplyDelete
  45. It's nothing Jare. Plenty markets like this in London. From Liverpool Street market to East street to Dalston to Peckham to Romford to Upton Park market. The good thing is one can a good bargain and haggle for discounts.

However, one tends to cook a lot of Mac and cheese, pasta bake, spag bol, salmon, chicken in white wine sauce, stroganoff etc....lol

  60. This is a common feature in most big cities and towns in Uk.I remember the open market at the back of bullring in Birmingham.You get things at incredibly cheap rates.The eastern european guys will open blocked phones and fix bad ones in a jiffy there.Even in places like walsall,tamworth and bloxwich there are periodic open markets like this.Reminiscing on those sweet days of mine at west midlands.
