The Village Market continues to be increasingly popular with vibrant shoppers and eager tourists. The Village Market attracts thousands of international tourists every year due to its architectural ingenuity as well as the unique African artifacts often on display by local traders and artists. Over the years, the centre has successfully been able to blend modernity and culture to provide an aura of modern shopping.
Inspired by the need to preserve cultural roots while harnessing aspects of contemporary lifestyles, The Village Market settled on a ‘village theme.’ This is characterized by the African spirit of togetherness, sharing and communal life – the seams that held ancient African society together. Likewise, The Village Market is reflective of these salient cultural features. Open every day from 8am to 11pm, though timings of individual shops and services may vary.
