Makola market, located in Accra’s bustling center, has a huge boulevard and many lanes lined with fabric merchants selling items such as wax-print pagnes and embroidered and beaded cotton and tulle for special occasions. Look for wax prints from Ghana Traditional Prints (GTP) and the Akosombo Textile Company, both of which release a variety of new patterns each year. Woodin, an upmarket fabric store with locations in Osu and the A&C shopping center in East Legon, sells a range of flashy patterned cottons, batiks, and ready-made outfits.

Kaneshie Market is both a transportation hub and a fantastic shopping destination, providing a broad range of largely traditional products and commodities. It sells food and household supplies, as well as beads, hair salons, shoes, purses, and beauty products, and fabric businesses.

The National Cultural Center, sometimes known as the “Arts Center” in Independence Square, is an overwhelming yet well-stocked alternative for curio shopping. Smaller curio markets may be located all across town.

Wild Gecko (near the Tetteh-Quarshie Interchange on the Kwame Nkrumah Motorway Extension) offers crafts, luxury curios, furniture, and batik clothes. Check out the vast assortment of Christmas decorations, which includes Adinkra motifs carved into little keepsakes. Several smaller but well-stocked pottery and artisan establishments are located down the dusty road near Wild Gecko.

Options for a more contemporary purchasing experience include:

  • The Accra Mall, off the Liberation Road
  • The A&C Shopping Mall, East Legon
  • Palace Shopping Mall, situated on the Spintex Road
  • Shaaba Shopping Mall, off the Motorway Extension
